Undergraduate Programs

If you like science, but you’re a people person and don’t want to work in a lab, consider a Pharmacy Administration degree at The University of Toledo. We have one of the country’s best undergraduate Pharmaceutical Sciences programs in the country.

Students come to UToledo not just to become pharmacists, but to become pharmacy leaders. Our Pharmacy Administration students focus on the business of pharmacy healthcare. Many earn a business minor from UToledo’s acclaimed College of Business and Innovation.

Students build a science foundation their first two years. They take the same pre-pharmacy classes as students in UToledo’s four other pharmaceutical sciences majors.

Students focus on the healthcare landscape and the business of healthcare during their final two years. They take foundational business classes and graduate with a broad skill set that can be applied to a variety of careers.
