I am confused between 'MSc Medical Genetics & Genomics' and 'MSc Clinical Pharmacology'.

I was planning on applying to either one of them in University of Glasgow.

Anyone has any idea about these courses?

Which one has better prospects towards graduate jobs?

Thank you!!

It depends on prospective jobs, both open doors to careers, it just depends on what career.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Forensic Science. I have studied these subjects and love them equally. Considering the Forensic Background, which course do you think is more relavant?

Well you can certainly join a big drug company with a clinical pharmacology degree. With programmes like 'long lost family' and sites like ancestry.com there is a growing need for people with genetics qualifications too but this is a newly forming industry and so harder to predict the long-term size of this market. Have a look at the NHS careers pages to see how many vacancies there are for people with genetics qualifications and ones with pharmacology masters. That will give you an idea.
