Program Overview

*This is not a baccalaureate degree program; instead, it is a graduate level doctor of pharmacy (PharmD).

The doctor of pharmacy degree, also called the PharmD, is an entry-level 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); instead it is a four-year graduate professional degree. An undergraduate degree is not currently required, however, as an admissions prerequisite.

Since 1886, the University at Buffalo School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (SoPPS) has been a national leader in education and research in both Pharmacy Practice and the Pharmaceutical Sciences. The PharmD program at the University at Buffalo is ranked among the top pharmacy programs in the United States, and is the only program of its kind available in the State University of New York (SUNY) system.
