Doctor of Pharmacy/Master of Science in Regulatory Science (PharmD/MS Regulatory Science)

The PharmD/MS Regulatory Science program is an intensive dual-degree program in which pharmacy education is enhanced by knowledge and skills related to medical product development and regulation. The program provides an opportunity for advanced preparation in the fields of clinical research, regulatory affairs and quality assurance, and helps fill the demand for skilled personnel in industry and government.

Admission Requirements and Application Process

Students interested in the dual PharmD/MS in Regulatory Science degree must be accepted by both programs. Students will not be given special consideration for admission to either program because they are applying for the dual degree.

Requirements for admission include:

  • a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university with a minimum GPA of 3.0
  • a minimum score of 1000 on the GRE (also will accept GMAT, MCAT or LSAT)

Students may apply to the dual PharmD/MS in Regulatory Science degree program in two ways:

Apply concurrently

  • Submit applications to both programs simultaneously.
  • Identify yourself on both applications as a potential dual-degree student.
  • If you are admitted to both programs, you will be offered admission to the PharmD and contingent admission to the MS Regulatory Science program, pending your passage of all courses in the first year of the PharmD program with a minimum 3.0 GPA.
  • If you are accepted by only one program, you may choose to attend that program, but will not be eligible for the dual degree.

Apply for the dual degree after acceptance to PharmD

  • You may instead submit an application to the MS in Regulatory Science program during your first year of enrollment in the PharmD, prior to the MS in Regulatory Science published application deadline.
  • If you choose this option, you must apply through the School of Pharmacy.
  • If you are admitted to the MS in Regulatory Science program, you will be offered admission to the dual degree if you pass all courses in your first year of the PharmD program with a minimum 3.0 GPA.
