The B.S. in Pharmaceutical Sciences is a cooperative articulation between FPU and California Health Sciences University (CHSU), in which you are able to complete a Doctor of Pharmacy degree in just seven years. The B.S. in Pharmaceutical Science will prepare you for success in graduate school, as you pursue a Doctor of Pharmacy.
- Fresno Pacific has partnered with California Health Sciences University to create a fast-track program where a student can earn a Doctorate in Pharmacy in just seven years, rather than eight – saving both time and money.
- Partnership program allows students to complete their 4th year at FPU while also beginning their first year at California Health Sciences University.
- Special research opportunities available
- Scholarships up to $4,000 may be available
The B.S. in Pharmaceutical Science prepares you to successfully enter graduate school, with priority admission offered at California Health Sciences University. Careers in pharmaceutical sciences include product development, research, production and manufacturing with jobs in the pharmaceutical industry, government agencies, biotech companies and hospitals.
In order to obtain a bachelor’s degree from Fresno Pacific University, students must complete at least 120 units. Along with completing all required courses in their selected area of study, general education requirements must be met by all graduates. See the general education summary in the undergraduate academic catalog for more information.
Select programs may not provide enough units for a student to graduate and therefore an emphasis and/or elective courses must be completed alongside the major. Please see below for emphases related to this area of study.
