The B.S. in pharmaceutical sciences is not a major, but rather is an internal degree granted to current doctor of pharmacy (Pharm.D.) students after they complete their second year of the Pharm.D. program. In order to qualify for the B.S. in pharmaceutical sciences, students must have attended UW–Madison prior to attending pharmacy school at Wisconsin, and must meet all degree requirements. More detailed information about this degree may be found on the school website.

Students interested in pursuing an undergraduate degree option offered by the School of Pharmacy may want to investigate the B.S. Pharmacology/Toxicology Program.  This interdisciplinary major in the biomedical sciences can serve as a foundation for graduate study, for health professional school (e.g., medical; pharmacy; dental; veterinary, and so on), or for entry-level scientific employment.
