What are Pharmaceutical Sciences?

Student in Pharmaceutical Sciences

The pharmaceutical sciences track will provide pharmacy students with greater exposure to the pharmaceutical sciences and related research. This track is designed to help students that are considering working as a pharmacist for a pharmaceutical company or planning to pursue a joint Pharm.D./Ph.D. degree.

This flexible track allows a wide range of options designed to fit each student's goals and is designed for easy integration with existing science minors and the pharmacy honors program.

Please let us know if you have a special interest. We are happy to set you up to talk with one of our professors. Email

Ask the Pharmacist

In a major public-private partnership, the UConn School of Pharmacy and Fox Connecticut teamed up to bring you the “Ask the Pharmacist” segment on their morning newscast. During these segments, we bring you timely and informative information to improve your lives, save money, and become more informed about your health and the health of your loved ones. This is another example of how the University of Connecticut School of Pharmacy exemplifies “Caring in Your Community.”  These segments are coordinated by C. Michael White, Pharm.D., FCP, FCCP professor and head of the Department of Pharmacy Practice.

While we hope you find this general information helpful, your individual health decisions should be made in concert with your own caregivers (pharmacist, physician, nurse) and while segments are up to date at the time of airing, may be supplanted by newer information in the future.
