Professional Pharm.D.

The Pharm.D. curriculum begins with two years of pre-professional studies in the liberal arts and sciences. The pre-pharmacy core curriculum of courses in the physical and biological sciences and mathematics is combined with humanities and social sciences to provide a foundation for the academic rigor of the professional phase of the Pharm.D. program, as well as a common and universally accepted body of knowledge and understanding of human concerns that will apply in students’ professional and personal lives.

Graduate Studies

The Division of Pharmaceutical Sciences offers programs in pharmaceutics at the master’s and doctoral levels, enabling students to explore the relationships between drug formulation, delivery and disposition, and the clinical response to pharmaceutical interventions. Individuals educated in pharmaceutics are in high demand in the pharmaceutical and other related industries, in academia and in government research laboratories.
