TECHS to BSPS Fast Track

The goal of this program between the Toledo Early College High School (TECHS) and The University of Toledo College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (UT ­CPPS) is to enable TECHS students to receive instruction in the biological and physical sciences to prepare them to earn a Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences (BSPS) degree. TECHS students will be offered a curriculum that will enable them to enter UT ­CPPS as first-year students with college credit in chemistry, calculus and in general education courses.

The pharmaceutical sciences are the applied sciences that underlie the pharmaceutical industry, related to the discovery, development, manufacture, formulation and economics of drugs, pharmaceutical products, and personal care/cosmetic products. A BSPS degree can be the start of a career, or it can provide entry to medical school, dental school or graduate school.

We offer a forward-looking program in the pharmaceutical sciences that is unique in three respects: It offers interdisciplinary training, five different majors and a required internship in industry or in research. 

Majors offered in the UT ­CPPS BSPS program are: 

What can the BSPS degree do for you?

Upon graduation, you can work in the pharmaceutical industry, the cosmetic/personal care industry, in biotech, environmental, and other science-oriented businesses. You can enter a professional program—medical school, dental school, law school, optometry, physician’s assistant program, occupational therapy, public health or business school. You can go on to a graduate program, earning a MS or PhD in basic or applied science and pursue a career in research, academia or industry.
