3+3 B.S. Biology/Pharm. D. (Doctor of Pharmacy) Program

The 3+3 B.S. Biology/Pharm. D. (Doctor of Pharmacy) program allows JWU Biology students who meet specified admissions criteria to earn a bachelor's degree from Johnson & Wales University and a Pharm. D. degree from University of Saint Joseph in six years. Qualified, accepted students may enroll in graduate-level Pharm. D. program classes at University of Saint Joseph School of Pharmacy (Connecticut) during their senior year at JWU, while fulfilling bachelor’s degree requirements simultaneously. Priority in admission to the School of Pharmacy at University of Saint Joseph will be given to JWU students applying via the 3+3 B.S. Biology/Pharm. D. program when those applicants have completed the first three years of the Biology B.S. in the dual degree program, satisfied admissions requirements of the Pharm. D. program, and are otherwise competitive with other applicants seeking admission to the Pharm. D. program. University of Saint Joseph pharmacy classes are not considered when determining residency requirements. Students may complete remaining graduate degree requirements in two additional years. Visit Articulation Agreements and select University of Saint Joseph 3+3 Biology-Pharm.D. to view the agreement.  

Interested students must contact the College of Arts & Sciences dean’s office to declare intent to pursue the 3+3 B.S. Biology/Pharm. D. Program. Pre-health advising is required.
