Admission to the B.S. Program begins with the UGA Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Once admitted to The University of Georgia, students who wish to pursue the B.S. Program in Pharmaceutical Sciences begin in the degree code, Intended Major – Pharmaceutical Sciences. This degree code is used during the completion of the first 60 credit hours of the program. A list of the courses that comprise these hours can be found here.
Once a student has completed the first 60 hours of the program they use the Athena Website to request a major change to the Pharmaceutical Sciences. Please note that in addition to completing the 60 hours, applicants must also have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher and must have completed all 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 B.S. program is shown here. Please note that being admitted to the Major – Pharmaceutical Sciences is not required to take upper division courses. While we encourage students to complete their first 60 hours as quickly as possible, some students may not complete all of these courses until their third year in the program.
