BS in Pharmaceutical Sciences
Welcome to our tight-knit undergraduate degree program rooted in the basic sciences, pharmaceutical science, research, and pre-health professionalization! The Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences (BSPS) program prepares students for professional health programs like pharmacy school (PharmD), medical school (MD), or dental school; pharmaceutical industry positions in areas such as drug discovery, development, manufacturing, and business; and graduate studies (MS or PhD) in disciplines like pharmaceutical engineering, medicinal chemistry, and clinical pharmacy translational science.
Graduates attain basic chemistry, mathematics, biology, and biochemical science 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 through undergraduate research and 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 interested in the BSPS degree program should 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.
