The Fairleigh Dickinson University School of Pharmacy is one of only two degree-granting pharmacy schools in New Jersey, and is the first in the state to be associated with a private university.
The School’s dynamic program of study integrates the very best practices in pharmacy education today. Students will:
- Have the option to specialize in a concentrated area of study and earn a master’s-level degree concurrently with the PharmD degree.
- Participate in new partnerships with pharmacy leaders in industry, retail, government and hospitals who will provide mentoring, guidance and resources.
- Benefit from the strengths of a small college environment, yet learn from top-tier faculty in new facilities specifically designed for the School of Pharmacy.
Dual Degree Pathways
Students who are accepted to the School of Pharmacy with a baccalaureate degree may have the opportunity to pursue a Masters degree in conjunction with the Doctor of Pharmacy degree following completion of the first professional year of the Pharmacy curriculum -- providing the opportunity for students to select a focused pathway of study while meeting the Doctor of Pharmacy curricular requirements.
The integration of required master’s courses within the pharmacy program curriculum may allow students to complete both degrees, with overload courses required for some master’s programs offered as evening, Saturday or online courses.
Students interested in a dual degree will be required to meet the admissions requirements for the selected second-degree pathway, in addition to maintaining a 3.0 grade point average within the Doctor of Pharmacy curriculum.

- Master of Business Administration (MBA)
- Master of Science (MS) in Pharmaceutical Science
