BS Program

undergraduate program

We appreciate your interest in the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) program in Pharmaceutical Sciences, offered by the Department of Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Sciences in the College of Pharmacy. Our inaugural class of B.S. students began in Fall 2013.

Like our department, the B.S. program is an interdisciplinary program representing all facets of the drug discovery and drug development processes. We encourage you to spend some time reviewing our website and learning more about our department, faculty and research areas. You may also download the program brochure here, Pharmacy PBS brochure – 2016 . The next step is to formally apply to the program. Please note that we will NOT evaluate your application unless your application is complete. The University of Georgia has an online application process that can be accessed here.

The B.S. Program requires successful completion of a specific 60 credit hours. A list of these courses can be found here. Please note that applicants to the program must have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5 and must complete all of the Chemistry, Biology, Physics, English and Math courses with a grade of C or better.

A list of the upper division courses required for completion of the degree is shown here and a typical program of study for students in the program is shown here.

A detailed comparison of the BS PS (Pharmaceutical Scientist)  and the Pharm D (Pharmacist) degree programs are shown here, Rx BS-RxD Comparison-2016. For more information about the Pharm D Program.
