College of Pharmacy


Pharm.D./MPH

Students who pair Pharm.D. and a master's degree in public health enhance their clinical pharmacy education with studies focused on public health policy, epidemiology and demographics.

A dual Pharm.D./MPH program is ideal for a pharmacist who seeks to add public health principles to professional patient care studies. A joint degree is highly desirable for students who plan to pursue a career in local, state or national health-related agencies or practice environments such as hospitals and health systems, managed-care or community health organizations.

The Pharm.D./MPH degree is offered between the College of Pharmacy and the Arnold School of Public Health. Pharmacy students will be able to enroll in the Master's of Public Health (General MPH) program at the Arnold School of Public Health. This program is available to pharmacy students on the University of South Carolina and the Greenville Hospital System campuses. Although about one-half of the MPH curriculum is offered via distance education, the remaining program coursework is available at the College of Pharmacy in Columbia.
