The bachelor of science in pharmacy studies is designed to provide doctor of pharmacy (Pharm.D.) students (who have no prior degree) the opportunity to pursue other degree programs during or after completing the Pharm.D. degree. Pharmacy students completing the second year of the professional Pharm.D. program will be awarded this degree (regardless of graduating from the Pharm.D. program). A student must complete the University Convocation credit requirements to be eligible to receive this degree. Please refer to samford.edu/spiritual-life/convocation for more information. All students are required to participate in commencement activities. Please note that this bachelor’s degree alone does not qualify a person to take the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination (NAPLEX).
