Roberta King with BSPS StudentThe 120-credit curriculum has four distinct components:

  • 28 credits of general education requirements, which will provide broad exposure to the humanities, arts, and social sciences.
  • 44-45 credits of basic science and mathematics courses, which will deliver a firm foundation in the sciences, and satisfy admission requirements for most basic science graduate programs and professional schools.
  • 32 credits of core requirements, which will offer you a strong basic and applied understanding of the pharmaceutical sciences.
  • 15-16 credits of electives, which are drawn from upper level B.S.P.S. courses and selected electives from other programs on campus, particularly those from the basic sciences and business. These courses will allow you to tailor a program of study to suit your specific career goals.
