Welcome to our tight-knit undergraduate degree program rooted in the basic sciences, pharmaceutical science, research, and pre-health professionalization at the University of Michigan! The Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences (BSPS) program prepares students for technical positions in the drug discovery, development, and manufacturing & production areas of the pharmaceutical industry. The BSPS degree is also excellent preparation for graduate studies (MS, PhD) in pharmaceutical, medical, and basic sciences; pharmaceutical engineering; or professional education in pharmacy (PharmD), medicine (MD), dentistry, veterinary medicine, business, and law. 

Graduates attain basic chemistry, mathematics, biology, and biochemical sciences training through the respective U-M academic departments outside of the College of Pharmacy while BSPS core courses are taught by our multidisciplinary team of College of Pharmacy faculty members. Our faculty also mentor students as research assistants and guide honors thesis projects. The BSPS student body is an active group leading organizations, participating in student government, and sitting on College committees. 

How to Apply: Students ready for the BSPS degree program must apply by March 1 during their first-year or sophomore year at the University of Michigan or from an accredited institution. Information regarding the application can be found on the BSPS Admissions Page. Students are admitted for Fall term start only. 

Note: graduates of the BSPS program are not eligible for licensure as pharmacists; the next step would be a PharmD program.
