Mission

The mission of the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences is to educate and mentor students in the sciences of medicinal chemistry, pharmaceutics, pharmacology, physiology, and toxicology at the undergraduate (BS), professional (PharmD), and graduate (MS, PhD) levels, and to conduct and foster research in these disciplines.

Vision

The vision of the department is to engage students in a challenging and thorough educational experience in the pharmaceutical sciences through classroom and laboratory instruction and independent, directed scientific research. We strive to provide our students with a strong foundation of specialized knowledge in the pharmaceutical sciences; the laboratory, communication, and evidence-based critical thinking skills; ethical and innovative attitudes and approaches; and opportunities to achieve a high degree of accomplishment and leadership.

Overview

The Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences offers two undergraduate degrees, the BS in pharmacology/toxicology, and the BS in pharmaceutical sciences, and contributes pharmaceutical science expertise, in collaboration with the Department of Pharmacy Practice and Pharmacy Administration, to the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program. It also offers graduate programs (MS and PhD) in pharmaceutics, pharmacology/toxicology, and industrial pharmacy.
