Academics

Since our founding in 1864, St. Louis College of Pharmacy has been dedicated to pharmacy and health care education. Our focus gives you a unique advantage and lets you begin discovering your path in health care. 

When you arrive at the College, located in the Washington University Medical Campus, you'll begin taking classes that are designed through the lens of health care. Even your history, English and biochemistry courses are specifically designed to help you become an exceptional health care provider or professional. 

During your time at the College, you'll interact with some of the nation's leading health care professionals, faculty and researchers who are part of our tight-knit community. 

No matter where your passions lead you in health care - whether it's pharmacy, medicine, nursing, health care administration, research or something entirely different - our health care-focused degrees can serve as the perfect foundation. 

School of Arts and Sciences

Home to our undergraduate programs, the School of Arts and Sciences will prepare you for health care careers as well as graduate and professional study.
