College of Pharmacy


Dual-Degree Programs

Pharm.D. students have the opportunity to expand their course of study while also completing a second graduate-level degree that complements a specialized area of interest.

The University of South Carolina is one of the leading institutions offering dual-degree programs that combine pharmacy with specialized areas such as business or health information technology. Whether focused on technology or patient care, a dual degree is considered highly desirable for students seeking careers in hospitals and health systems, the pharmaceutical industry, pharmacy benefit management organizations and academia.

By pursuing a dual degree, a student can concurrently work toward a pharmacy degree from the College of Pharmacy as well as a graduate degree from the University of South Carolina’s Moore School of Business, Arnold School of Public Health or Integrated Information Technology (IIT) Program.
