Program Overview

ʰФ’s School of Pharmacy and the School of Arts & Sciences have partnered to offer a Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences (BSPS) degree. The BSPS is a four-year undergraduate degree that prepares students for a rewarding career in pharmaceutical sciences by studying courses that equip students to go into the field of pharmacy.

The BSPS is designed for students who wish to earn both a BSPS and a Doctor of Pharmacy degree at Concordia. Students complete pharmacy school prerequisites and many of the major requirements during the pre-pharmacy years. Upon admission into the PharmD program at ʰФ, students use courses taken during their first year in the PharmD program to fulfill the remaining BSPS requirements and be awarded an undergraduate degree.

*This is not a professional degree program and completion of the BSPS degree does not qualify graduates to take licensure examinations to become a registered pharmacist.
