We are the future of Pharmacy

We invite you to take some time to explore the information here and get to know us at the ULM College of Pharmacy

The ULM College of Pharmacy was established in 1956, and since that time it has maintained and grown in its reputation as a well-respected institution for both professional and graduate pharmaceutical education in the South. The education offered at ULM equips our students with the tools necessary to be prepared for and be successful in the constantly changing field of health care. Graduates of our programs work across the nation in community and health-system pharmacies, clinical practices, managed care groups, academia, the pharmaceutical industry, and a wide variety of other settings. 

Students attending ULM receive a challenging and forward-thinking education that combines classroom learning, practical application, and experiential training in our state-of-the-art pharmacy facility located in Monroe, Louisiana. We invite you to take some time to explore the information here and get to know us at the ULM College of Pharmacy.  

High school students are encouraged to visit our Provisional Entry Program page for information on how to reserve your spot at the ULM College of Pharmacy now. 

The University of Louisiana at Monroe College of Pharmacy offers a four-year Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree. To be eligible to apply to our program, applicants must complete approximately two to three years of undergraduate courses (a minimum of 67 semester credit hours), which can be taken at any accredited college or university. Upon admission to the professional program, students begin three years of classroom, laboratory, and practice instruction at ULM, followed by one year of experiential rotations at locations around the state in which students train in a variety of practice settings.

Because of a growing need for pharmacy profession leaders to be proficient in a variety of areas, the ULM College of Pharmacy offers combination degree programs for the professional pharmacy student to graduate with both the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree and the Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree or the PharmD degree and the Doctor of Philosophy(PhD) degree in Pharmacy.  In addition to completing the curriculum of the PharmD program, the combination degree student will also complete the curriculum of the chosen second degree program.  Some coursework will overlap between the two degree programs.  The combination degree program requires a high level of academic commitment due to the additional responsibilities of working simultaneously on two rigorous academic degrees. More information regarding our combination degree programs can be found here.

College students are encouraged to browse our menu at the left for a complete look at our school, how to apply, and what to expect.
