The Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences has established a combined undergraduate and graduate program. Qualified senior students may enroll simultaneously in the undergraduate Bachelor of Health Science with a concentration in pharmaceutical sciences degree program and the graduate Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree program and apply a maximum of thirty credits toward both the undergraduate and graduate degree.

Those who are enrolled in this program may expect to complete the B.H.S. pharmaceutical sciences concentration and the Pharm.D. degrees in seven years of full-time study.

NOTE: The B.H.S. pharmaceutical sciences concentration does not qualify the holder for licensure as a pharmacist. The Pharm.D. degree is required to qualify the holder for licensure as a pharmacist.
