The College of Pharmacy offers the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree to students who successfully complete prescribed courses. The sole entry level degree for the pharmacy profession, the college’s comprehensive academic program prepares students for the practice of pharmacy and the delivery of pharmaceutical care. UGA’s Pharm.D. program is a direct gateway to a well-rounded career blending science, health care, direct patient contact, computer technology and business in such areas as academia, clinical pharmacy, chain community pharmacy, independent community pharmacy, hospital pharmacy, the pharmaceutical industry, and much more.

Pre-pharmacy coursework may be completed at any accredited institution of higher education. The last four years (ten semesters) are in the professional program and must be in residence at the UGA College of Pharmacy.

To be admitted to the professional program in the College of Pharmacy, a student must have completed 69 semester hours of specified pre-pharmacy coursework. The Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT) is required for admission, and applicants are encouraged to take it early, with the March test score prior to the desired fall semester matriculation being the last one which can be considered for admission purposes. The highest composite PCAT score will be used. For complete information concerning the pre-pharmacy curriculum, refer to the College of Pharmacy section of the UGA Bulletin, found here.
