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


The Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Science program prepares you for careers in the pharmaceutical, consumer products, and healthcare industries. As B.S.P.S. graduate, you will be qualified to seek a diverse range of career options, including research and development, manufacturing, product marketing, and administrative positions within the pharmaceutical industry, as well as careers in research and regulatory oversight within government agencies.

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

  • 40 credits of general education requirements, which will provide broad exposure to the humanities, arts, and sciences.
  • 41-44 credits of basic science and mathematics courses, which will deliver a firm foundation in the sciences, and satisfy admission requirements for most science graduate programs and professional schools.
  • 45 credits of B.S.P.S. core requirements, which will offer you a strong basic and applied understanding of the pharmaceutical sciences. This includes 6 credits in experiential learning (3 credits internship and 3 credits of independent study).

Within the 45 credits of core requirements, Students have the option to tailor their academic program to prepare them for the specific career paths that they choose by substituting up to 12 credits of B.S.P.S. core requirements with pre-approved professional electives.  The associate dean will maintain a list of approved professional electives.
