Bachelor of Science (Pharmacy)
The bachelor of science (pharmacy) program is designed to provide students with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to become competent pharmacy professionals prepared to work in a variety of settings, including: community pharmacy and hospital environments; pharmaceutical industries; government and pharmacy associations; or to undertake advanced training in clinical practice and research. The bachelor of science (pharmacy) degree requires a minimum of five years of university study (one year before and four years after admission to the School of Pharmacy). The degree is required to be licensed as a pharmacist.
The school, together with the General Hospital, the Janeway Child Health and Rehabilitation Centre, the Faculty of Medicine and the School of Nursing, is located in the Health Sciences Centre. This setting is unique in Canada and provides an ideal situation for education in pharmacy.
Students are admitted only in September of each year and applications must be received by March 1.
Students applying for admission are normally required to have completed a minimum of 30 credit hours, including the following courses or their equivalents.
- English - two courses at the first-year level
- Mathematics 1000 & 1001
- Chemistry 1050 & 1051 (or equivalent)
- Physics 1020 & 1021 (1050 & 1051)
- Biology 1001 & 1002
These pre-requisite courses must be completed by the end of the winter semester in the year in which admission is sought.
As part of the admissions process, interviews are held which include both a written and verbal component. Admission to the program is on the basis of competition for a limited number of places. Priority for a number of seats is given to students who are bona fide residents of Newfoundland and Labrador.
