At Wayne State, you can get a degree in chemical sciences or chemistry health science, and you’ll be well prepared for graduate school. Then with your pharmacy degree, you will be ready to practice pharmacy in a wider range of settings: community pharmacies, hospitals, long-term care facilities, or the pharmaceutical industry.

About

Pharmacists work in the field of medicine and drugs in order to treat illness. To become a pharmacist, you’ll first need an undergraduate degree before entering pharmacy school. 

The programme

As a student in the Department of Physical Sciences and Mathematics, you’ll be prepared for advanced work in the fields of mathematics or physical science (physics, chemistry, and earth science), and certain fields of health care such as medicine, optometry, pharmacy, and radiography. If teaching is your passion, you can follow the path to become a math or science educator.

Our department is located in the Carhart Science Building and features state-of-the-art physical and chemical science labs with cutting-edge equipment. Wayne State College also boasts the Fred G. Dale Planetarium, the most technologically advanced planetarium in the state, offering weekly shows often led by WSC students on a 30-foot dome. Here you’ll receive further education designed to explain physical laws and mathematical principles. 

Our faculty-student collaboration on research projects, along with participation in regional service and community outreach, lends to successful graduates and high placement rate of graduates in professional schools, where Wayne State students regularly graduate at the top of their classes.
