Academic Programs

Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Science (B.S.P.S.)

Internships

We recognize that hands-on experience is just as important as the knowledge-based learning gained in the classroom. Required laboratory courses will provide broad and consistent training for all students. Experiences in companies or faculty research labs are optional, but highly encouraged and supported by the program.

To assist students to learn about, understand, and apply for internships, a new course has been developed at URI, first offered in Fall 2012, titled Pharmaceutical Sciences Orientation. This course is intended for sophomores in the BSPS major, so that they can develop a clear understanding of the scope of Pharmaceutical Sciences early in the 4-year program.

Pharmaceutical Sciences Orientation Course Assignments 

  1. Prepare a Company Report, describing one company which conducts some aspect of pharmaceutical sciences. Communicate the findings to fellow students.
  2. Prepare a report which explores a potential career path for individuals educated with BS in Pharmaceutical Sciences. Choose a specific area within pharmaceutical sciences and describe the area, types of employers and jobs in that area, and the specific education or skills needed to prepare for such a position. Communicate the findings to fellow students.
  3. Draft and polish a resume highlighting the student’s own capabilities relevant to pharmaceutical sciences.
  4. Draft and polish a “professional statement” regarding the student’s own academic and career goals appropriate for fellowship applications and related purposes.

More about Internships

Most internships require completion of sophomore year of study. Many–especially the larger companies—have minimum GPA requirements.

Links to specific opportunities will be available through the URI site RhodyNet (URI student and faculty access only), and through the following list of public links to programs at the large pharmaceutical companies.
