Pharmaceutical Sciences BS
The pharmaceutical sciences major is a four-year program leading to a Bachelor of Science degree in pharmaceutical sciences. Students are educated for employment opportunities as pharmaceutical associate research scientists engaged in drug discovery and development research.
While the major is structurally a basic science program, it is also a unique interdisciplinary field. Areas of interest in pharmaceutical sciences range from the physical chemistry of pharmaceutical systems; to biopharmaceutics, which encompasses the study of the relationship between the nature and intensity of biologic effects of drugs and various dosage formulation factors; to pharmacokinetics, which is the science of the quantitative analysis of drug concentration (drug absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination) and drug effects in the body; to clinical pharmacokinetics, which is concerned with the application of pharmacokinetics to the safe and effective therapeutic management of individual patients.Undergraduate Degree & Course Catalog - Pharmaceutical Sciences BS
