Our Pharmaceutical Chemistry program combines three major disciplines: basic sciences, biomedical sciences and pharmaceutical sciences.

Which are related through scientific research, biotechnology and innovation for the design and development of products and processes necessary for the care and protection of human, animal and environmental health.

We train professionals with high human, ethical standards and with a sense of social responsibility. Passionate about science, motivated by the service to others, without fear of facing the challenges that knowledge proposes.

You have the possibility of carrying out a double program with Ecology or Biology

We have a curriculum that promotes the construction and permanent development of our students with high standards of quality and excellence, in order to offer society a comprehensive, responsible and leading pharmaceutical chemist.

For this, we also rely on the development of lines and research groups that project the student to society, through advisory and consulting activities that support the academic and teaching activity of the University.
