Our curriculum combines liberal arts and sciences with a professional program leading to a Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) with an integrated Bachelor of Science (B.S.). After completing undergraduate requirements, many students progress into the four-year Pharm.D. program without taking the PCAT. The first professional (P1) year also fulfills the integrated bachelor's degree.
Throughout the professional program, you will have opportunities to customize your plan of study through elective courses. Elective Focus Areas such as clinical services, public health, research, and entrepreneurship will help you tailor your education to your career goals.
