Pharmaceutics Bachelor's Degree Overview
Most people think you go to pharmacy school to be a pharmacist. But many students come to The University of Toledo to become pharmacy scientists. Our undergraduate pharmaceutical sciences program is one of the nation’s best.
UT’s bachelor’s degree in pharmaceutics focuses on the science of designing, testing and packaging drugs in all of their dosage forms — pills, capsules, injections, ointments and more.
Students study the physical, biological and chemical aspects of all the materials that go into the drug. They get plenty of lab experience and use cutting-edge technology to test the drugs and ensure their potency, safety and stability.
