Undergraduate and Professional Programs
The Purdue College of Pharmacy offers two undergraduate and one professional program:
- The Pre-Doctor of Pharmacy Program is a two-year, non-degree program that is intended to prepare students for entry into the PharmD program below. Completing this program, however, does not guarantee entry into the PharmD program.
- The Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences (BSPS) is a four-year undergraduate program that stresses the multidisciplinary basic sciences related to drug discovery, development, and commercialization. A degree in this program does not allow graduates to become licensed pharmacists.
- The Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) is a four-year professional degree program, which requires completion of a recognized pre-pharmacy program. Successful completion of this degree allows you to sit for the licensing exam to practice pharmacy.
