College of Pharmacy


Train for the rewarding challenges and opportunities of academic pharmacy and biomedical research with a combined Pharm.D. / Ph.D.

The University of South Carolina College of Pharmacy's Pharm.D./Ph.D. program is a rigorous research program for students who want to combine clinical learning and research investigation. The combination 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.
