BS in Pharmaceutical Sciences

What would I study for a BS in Pharmaceutical Sciences at the College of Pharmacy? How can I apply?

The pharmaceutical sciences represent a dynamic and interdisciplinary field that integrates chemistry, biology, and engineering to design and develop new medicines. The four-year BS in Pharmaceutical Sciences program prepares students for technical positions in the drug discovery, development, and manufacturing/production areas of the pharmaceutical industry. Our students learn how new medications are developed and brought to the market, shadow practitioners in the field, and develop research skills in laboratory facilities across campus. For more information about the BS in Pharmaceutical Sciences (BSPS) degree program, view the College of Pharmacy's website.

Enrolled students in the BS program are not guaranteed admission to the PharmD program; graduates of the BS program are not eligible for licensure as pharmacists.

Applicants who are transferring from an institution other than the University of Michigan should submit the Common Application whereas those that are transferring from another school or college within U-M should submit the Cross Campus Transfer Application. Please visit the Bachelors Program Admissions webpage for detailed instructions.

If you are currently in high school, you may also apply to the College of Pharmacy's PharmD Preferred Admission program by submitting the Common Application as a first-year applicant to the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA). Please note that Preferred Admission is a conditional assurance of admission into the PharmD program, and that upon admission to the Preferred Admission program, LSA students have up to four years to fulfill Preferred Admission program entry requirements.
