Your path to the Doctor of Pharmacy runs through Ursuline.
Ursuline College partners with Duquesne University to offer students interested in pharmacology the advantages of attending both a small, private liberal arts college and a large urban university, all while earning a Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree at the accelerated pace of six or seven years. In the 3+4 Program, students spend three years at Ursuline majoring in chemistry before moving to Duquesne for an additional four years. The first year of pharmacy school fulfills the requirements for a bachelor’s in chemistry from Ursuline College, while the combined four fulfill the requirements for the Pharm.D. Students can also purse the 2+4 Program, spending two years at Ursuline and four at Duquesne to earn only the Pharm.D. from Duquesne.
The Duquesne University School of Pharmacy is nationally recognized and has had a 99% job placement rate for the past 25 years. The program received a 2015 Pinnacle Award from the American Pharmacists Association Foundation; is ranked third in research funding among private schools of pharmacy by the National Institutes of Health; and is ranked second among Catholic schools of pharmacy by the U.S. News and World Report. Ursuline's unique partnership with this University ensures your successful transition to employment in thriving healthcare markets throughout both Cleveland and Pittsburgh.
