The Purdue College of Pharmacy, consistently ranked among the 10 best pharmacy programs in the nation, offers a uniquely diverse range of undergraduate and graduate study opportunities. A total of 10 different programs and 700 pharmacy practice experiences prepare students for a range of top-paying careers in the fields of pharmacy, pharmaceutical sciences, and the health sciences.

Undergraduate Programs

The Purdue College of Pharmacy offers three undergraduate programs:

  • The Pre-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 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.
