Careers in Pharmacology
The scientific skills learned within a pharmacology degree make graduates attractive to a wide range of employers, which can open the door to a variety of career options after graduation. There are many scientific opportunities for people who want to work with medicines, as biologicals scientists but who are not interested in direct day to day patient contact.
Most graduates in this discipline will work in areas such as academic research, or in the pharmaceutical industry in areas such as drug discovery and drug development.
Outside the academic or industrial laboratory based careers, graduates may undertake roles including science consultancy, teaching, marketing, scientific writing or journalism, or scientific or pharmaceutical sales.
Graduates can often continue their training and education by pursuing an MSc or PhD, or working in a pharmaceutical/drug discovery company.
