Pharmacy at UG and PG Level

Undergraduate Diploma in Pharmacy - The undergraduate pharmacy courses involve a combined study of Medical Science and Chemical Science to discover new medications and the subsequent sale of pharmaceutical drugs. It also prepares a student about how to maintain a drugstore.

Bachelor’s Degree in Pharmacy (B. Pharm) – The B.Pharm is one of the popular job oriented course out of all the pharmacy courses among the science students after class 12th. In this course, students study about drugs and medicines, Pharmaceutical Engineering, Medicinal Chemistry etc. This course provides a large number of job opportunities in both, public and private sector.

A Bachelor’s degree in Pharmacy includes subjects for students willing to pursue a Doctor of Pharmacy program in future. Applicants, who enrol in this course, require a firm backing in Science. The subjects covered under a B. Pharm course include Human Anatomy and Physiology, Pharmaceutical Maths and Biostatics, Biochemistry and Pharmaceutical Biotechnology. Bachelor of Pharmacy (B.Pharm) is an undergraduate degree course in the field of Pharmacy education. The students those are interested in the medical field (except to become a doctor) can choose this course after the completion of class 12th (PCM/B). After the completion of this degree, students can practice as a Pharmacist. Pharmacists can work in a range of industries related to the prescription, manufacture & provision of medicines. The duration of this course is 4 years.

Master’s Degree in Pharmacy - M. Pharm is divided into three major categories. The first part includes the understanding of various fields of medicine and healthcare. It also covers practical/ experiments, seminars and lectures that a student is supposed to attend. This is done in order to ensure that a student is academically ready for the second part of the program, which is writing a thesis on their chosen aspect of pharmacy. This is the most preferred course after graduation out of all the pharmacy courses by aspiring Pharma students.

Pharmacy Syllabus at PG Level

Postgraduate Degree in Clinical Research - Amongst various pharmacy courses, it is an in-depth study of the various aspects of clinical research, including:

Ethical Values

Students study the rules and ethical behaviour that conform to the standard practices while pursuing clinical research.


It involves the concepts and practices that are required to study clinical psychology.

Drug Development

It explains the proper application of science in the course of development of a new drug.

Clinical Trials

It throws light on practices like trial designs, data management and documentation.

Safety and Quality Control

The subject teaches a student to follow industry norms of safety and clinical quality control while conducting clinical trials and drug development.

Legal Aspects of Clinical Research

It educates students about for laid down by the industry. It also covers information regarding national and international regulatory organisations.

Case Studies

Students attend lectures informing them about the industry

Postgraduate Degree in Intellectual Property Rights (Pharmacy) - Unlike other pharmacy courses, it deals majorly with the legal and ethical aspects and rules that need to be followed while pursuing a career in pharmaceutical research and development. It teaches students about the accepted norms of clinical drug development.

Master of Science (Pharma) - Like most of the postgraduate pharmacy courses, it is also divided into four semesters. The subjects covered include:

General Pharmacology

Analytical Techniques

Pharmacological Standardisation and Screening

Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Molecular Biology

Quality Control and Assurance

Clinical Drug Research and Development
