»Programs at the School of Pharmacy

The Chapman University School of Pharmacy (CUSP) offers two, unique programs in a strategic location - a Master of Science in the Pharmaceutical Sciences (MSPS) and a three year accelerated professional Doctor of Pharmacy degree.

The Doctor of Pharmacy degree is a three-year, accelerated professional degree composed of eight, 15-week trimesters where students will begin in the fall of each year. Personalized education is a core value for Chapman University, therefore, for many pharmacy courses students will be broken up into smaller groups of 15 or 30. 

Beginning Fall 2014, the School of Pharmacy will offer a 2-year, year-round thesis Master of Science in the Pharmaceutical Sciences (MSPS) for students interested in a broad range of scientific disciplines critical to the discovery and development of new drugs and therapies. 

In addition, the School of Pharmacy will offer a Pre-Pharmacy Freshman Early Assurance Program (FEAP) for academically exceptional graduating high school students who want to study pharmacy.  Students accepted into this program will spend two years on Chapman’s beautiful campus in Orange before matriculating into the Pharmacy school.  They will earn their PharmD degree five years after graduating from high school.
