*This is not a baccalaureate degree program; instead, it is a graduate level doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) degree.
The doctor of pharmacy degree, also called the PharmD, is a professional degree that enables one to work as a pharmacist, interacting with patients and other health care practitioners about medications. It is not an undergraduate degree (such as a BS or BA). An undergraduate degree is not currently required as an admissions prerequisite.
