ABOUT OUR PROGRAM
At the Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy, we provide pharmacy education with a liberal arts lens. Our four-year program balances classroom learning with hands-on clinical experience; we believe that demonstrating how the classroom relates to practice through experience is fundamental to understanding the profession.
Housed in a modern facility, our small, student-focused program strives to create and maintain a diverse educational and working environment. Faculty members include award-winning teachers, student advocates, and experienced pharmacy practitioners. We place a high value on advocacy, activism, and community outreach, incorporating opportunities for service learning throughout our pharmacy program.
All PharmD graduates must pass both the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination (NAPLEX) and the Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Examination (MPJE) to become licensed.
