Pharmacy instruction at Howard University began in the “;Department” of Medicine in 1868. The initial course, held in the evening, offered students “;knowledge of the art and science of pharmacy.” The first student graduated in 1870. With advances in medicine and the health sciences, the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences was merged into a new College of Pharmacy, Nursing and Allied Health Sciences and was subsequently re-named the College of Pharmacy. The College of Pharmacy currently offers: a 4-year entry level Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree program; a 5-year entry level Pharm.D./MBA dual degree program; a 2-year post B.S. Pharm.D. Degree program; and, a Non-Traditional program to licensed pharmacists who wish to further their professional knowledge and skills. The School also offers M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Pharmaceutical Sciences to applicants with a B.S. degree.
