Joining this field is a big responsibility, but it is also a wonderful honor. If you are eager to serve others in a life-changing way, the Pharmaceutical Sciences program of Concordia University Wisconsin just might be for you.


Build a healthy community

Drugs are one of the greatest innovations of the modern era. When used appropriately and knowledgeably, they can improve and save lives. Yet we all recognize how easily they can be misused and misapplied. That is where you come in. By studying the benefits and risks of medicinal drugs, you can support the wellbeing of your entire community. Are you up for the challenge?

Dual Degree Option

Concordia University Wisconsin’s School of Pharmacy and the School of Arts & Sciences have partnered to offer a 3+4 dual degree program. In the 3+4 dual degree program, students spend three years at CUW as an undergraduate student taking classes towards a BSPS, while fulfilling the pre-pharmacy course requirements for CUW’s Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program. Upon admission into the PharmD program at CUW, students begin the four-year PharmD program. Students use courses taken during their PharmD program to fulfill BSPS degree requirements. In the 3+4 dual degree program, students earn a bachelor’s degree at the end of the first year in the Doctor of Pharmacy program, with the PharmD degree awarded at the end of the four-year PharmD program.

The Pharmaceutical Sciences program of Concordia University Wisconsin is a great option high school students should consider when applying to colleges. It is also a great option for Concordia freshman or sophomores to explore. At Concordia, you can work on your undergradate degree while also working toward a quick pathway to earning your Doctor of Pharmacy Degree.

It is worth noting that if you are not accepted into the PharmD program, you will be on track to earn a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences after four years of undergraduate coursework. Students who are accepted to the PharmD program (and, thus, earn their bachelor's degree in pharmaceutical sciences), may not double-major in biomedical sciences due to the substantial content overlap between these two programs.

What to expect

Pharmacy requires extensive knowledge within science, thus our pharmeceutical sciences program is very rigorous. With a career as a pharmacist as your ultimate goal, you strive to be the expert in the biochemistry of the body, the impact of pathological conditions, and the interaction with the pharmaceutical agents prescribed.
