Biological Sciences with a Concentration in Pharmaceutical Sciences

 

A collaborative program

 

Pharmaceutical sciences are concerned with the discovery, development, delivery, action, analysis, clinical application, cost effectiveness and regulation of drugs and therapies. From research and development to manufacturing delivery systems to studying the metabolic effects of drugs on the human body, pharmaceutical sciences include a wide range of categories and career opportunities.

This program is a collaboration between the University of Delaware (UD) and the Thomas Jefferson University (TJU) School of Pharmacy

What’s special about this program?

The Jefferson College of Pharmacy is a partner in one of the country’s most successful and highly recognized healthcare learning environments, recognized for progressive care, practice, education and research. Collaboration is a hallmark of the program and students and faculty have many opportunities to partner with peers across our entire organization and in clinical settings throughout the region. The degree program is designed for students to complete three years of study at UD followed by four years at TJU. The courses taken in the first year (and if necessary, in the second year) at TJU will complete the requirements for the B.S. degree from UD while at the same time serving as the first year (and if necessary, the second year) of the Pharmacy program. When the four years are completed at TJU the student will receive a doctor of pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree.
