The bachelor of science in pharmacy studies is designed to provide doctor of pharmacy (Pharm.D.) students the opportunity to pursue other degree programs during or after completing the Pharm.D. degree. All pharmacy students completing the entire second year of the professional Pharm.D. program will be awarded this degree (regardless of graduating from the Pharm.D. program or other bachelor degree programs). 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 expected to participate in the commencement activities. Please note that this bachelor’s degree alone does not qualify a person to take the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination (NAPLEX).
