The curriculum offered by the Skaggs School of Pharmacy consists of a six-year program leading to the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree. The pre-professional portion of the curriculum is spent in studies of the basic physical and biological sciences and in course work necessary to satisfy the University's general education requirements.
During the first three professional years of the Pharm.D. program, students devote their time to the study of the pharmaceutical sciences and pharmacy practice. Areas of study include biochemistry, microbiology, pharmaceutics, medicinal chemistry, pharmacology, social administrative pharmacy, and therapeutics.
The fourth year of the professional program is entirely experiential.
