The University of Louisiana at Monroe College of Pharmacy offers a four-year Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree. To be eligible to apply to our program, applicants must complete approximately two to three years of undergraduate courses (a minimum of 67 semester credit hours), which can be taken at any accredited college or university. Upon admission to the professional program, students begin three years of classroom, laboratory, and practice instruction at ֱ̲, followed by one year of experiential rotations at locations around the state in which students train in a variety of practice settings.

Because of a growing need for pharmacy profession leaders to be proficient in a variety of areas, the ֱ̲ College of Pharmacy offers combination degree programs for the professional pharmacy student to graduate with both the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree and theMaster of Business Administration(MBA) degree or the PharmD degree and the Doctor of Philosophy(PhD) degree in Pharmacy. In addition to completing the curriculum of the PharmD program, the combination degree student will also complete the curriculum of the chosen second degree program. Some coursework will overlap between the two degree programs. The combination degree program requires a high level of academic commitment due to the additional responsibilities of working simultaneously on two rigorous academic degrees. More information regarding our combination degree programs can be found here.
