About this course
The 7-year Bachelor of Science (BS)/Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) curriculum implemented in Fall 2014 consists of a 3-year pre-professional program followed by a 4-year professional program. To afford students the ability to tailor a program of study most closely matching their interests and goals, students select which BS degree option they wish to pursue along the way to attaining the Pharm.D. degree.
The BS in Health Sciences consists of 123 semester hours of study, and the BS in Health Humanities consists of 122 semester hours of study. Across the entire seven years of study, a minimum total of 242 semester hours (with the BS Health Sciences) or 241 semester hours (with the BS Health Humanities) must be completed to earn the Pharm.D. degree with its integrated BS degree. The selected BS degree is earned upon satisfactory completion of all BS degree requirements which typically occurs after four academic years of study.
