B.S. in Pharmaceutical Sciences
The B.S.P.S. degree may be taken as a practice or a nonpractice track. The practice track is designed to prepare a student for entry into the Pharm.D. professional program. The nonpractice tracks are designed to prepare a student for a pharmacy-related career (e.g., research or marketing) or graduate school.
Minimum Total Credit Hours: 142
On the baccalaureate level, the school shall foster an environment where students can learn and apply the principles and theories related to the pharmaceutical sciences and acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitudes in their chosen discipline such that each can enter and succeed in a professional career in the pharmaceutical sciences, or continue studies in areas including, but not limited to, the Doctor of Pharmacy program or graduate studies in the pharmaceutical sciences.
