The Doctor of  Pharmacy (PharmD) program, the entry level degree program for a pharmacist, requires a minimum of six years to complete, two years of pre-pharmacy at the undergraduate level followed by competitive admission into the final four years at the graduate level at the James L. Winkle College of Pharmacy.

UC offers a MS/PhD program in the pharmaceutical sciences. Students may specialize in pharmaceutics, pharmacology, drug development, medicinal chemistry or social and administrative sciences.

UC's master's of science track in cosmetic science, one of only three such programs in the U.S., is available on campus and through a new distance learning option. The college recently launched a novel MS track in drug development in which students focus on the scientific and regulatory aspects of drug discovery/development.

Graduates of the James L. Winkle College of Pharmacy have a 100% placement rate prior to graduation and are highly sought after by professional and pharmaceutical employers.
