College of Pharmacy


Pharm.D./Ph.D.

The Pharm.D. and Ph.D. dual-degree program at the University of South Carolina College of Pharmacy provides pharmaceutics graduate training in conjunction with the clinical training of the Pharm.D. Program.

Carolina's Pharm.D./Ph.D. program is a rigorous research program for students who want to combine clinical learning and research investigation. The dual-degree program makes it possible for you to earn a Pharm.D. and Ph.D. degree together and often in a shorter timeframe than earning the two degrees separately.

Students who earn concurrent graduate degrees are well positioned for the teaching and research of an academic career or for work in government or industrial settings. Both the deep knowledge of graduates and rigors of completing the accelerated program translate well into many scientific disciplines that are essential to medical and pharmaceutical research.
