The Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences Program (BSPS) at the American University of Health Sciences provides a rigorous and interdisciplinary degree program that will not only serve the role of a preparatory major for admission into a professional curriculum leading to the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program. In addition, the program will ultimately prepare graduates for career paths in both the pharmaceutical industry and the health care sector.
