The School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences offers three five-year programs leading to a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD)/Master of Science (MS) degree involving advanced coursework and intense graduate level research training.
MS applications must be submitted by Dec. 31 prior to fall admission. Late applications are not considered.
The Class of 2026 may enter only after second year.
If a student completes the PharmD/MS Pharmaceutical Sciences (PHC), PharmD/MS Pharmacometrics and Personalized Pharmacotherapy (PPP) or PharmD/MS Clinical and Translational Therapeutics (CTT), they may be eligible for an additional two years of work authorization (after Post-Completion OPT) using the OPT STEM extension.
In addition to completing the PharmD/MS degree, your future employment must be in the field of PHC, PPP or CTT respectively, and also meet the other STEM OPT requirements. Please review all STEM OPT eligibility requirements and consulting with International Student Services (ISS) with any questions.
