Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical SciencesBachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences
A four year Bachelor of Science degree program in Pharmaceutical Sciences (BSPS) is designed to prepare students for careers in entry level positions in the pharmaceutical, biomedical, biotechnology, drug discovery and development industries or to prepare graduates for admission into advanced degree (MS, PhD) programs in the pharmaceutical sciences. The BSPS does not qualify or prepare graduates to apply for licensure for the practice of pharmacy.
Currently, this BSPS program will be open to students already enrolled in the PharmD degree and for other science majors (e.g., Chemistry, Biology, Psychology, etc) at Northeastern University. PharmD students who choose to opt out of pursuing licensure for direct patient care in the practice of pharmacy may consider BSPS program for a future career that is grounded in the pharmaceutical sciences. The transition of a student from the PharmD program to the BSPS program is seamless since the coursework for the first two years of our 6 year PharmD curriculum is identical to the BSPS curriculum. Based on space availability, matriculated NU students majoring in science based disciplines could also apply for internal transfer into the program with advanced standing through the Bouve College of Health Science Program Internal Transfer Program website beginning fall, 2012. The degree requires a minimum of 4 years of study at least one Coop period. The total number of semester credits (134-143), meets the University minimum of 128 credit hours for a B.S. degree.
