LIU College of Pharmacy (The Arnold & Marie Schwartz College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences)

The decision to pursue a career in pharmacy is a smart investment in your future. As one of the largest and oldest pharmacy schools in the country, we have educated more than 20,000 professional and graduate pharmacy students, many of whom are now leaders in their field.

The Doctor of Pharmacy is classified as a "doctor's degree-professional practice" by the U.S. Department of Education. LIU offers a six-year Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree program to prepare students for entry-level pharmacy practice. The program consists of two years of pre-professional studies (offered through LIU Brooklyn's Richard L. Conolly College of Liberal Arts and Sciences) and four years of professional studies.

LIU Pharmacy offers graduate curricula leading to the Doctor of Philosophy in Pharmaceutics (Ph.D.) degree, and the Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Pharmaceutics (with specializations in Industrial Pharmacy and Cosmetic Science), Pharmacology/Toxicology, and Drug Regulatory Affairs.

Take the next step in your career in the pharmacy profession and discover your full potential at LIU Pharmacy.
