The UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy offers three distinctive degree programs. Our Doctor of Pharmacy offers a pharmacy-education curriculum that will give you an edge when you enter the world of work. The Pharm.D. program is offered at our flagship campus in Chapel Hill and at our satellite campus in Asheville, North Carolina. They both offer the same great classroom, practice, and leadership opportunities.

Are you more interested in advanced training in drug development, delivery, and policy?  Our Ph.D. program in the pharmaceutical sciences provides a tailored curriculum and research experiences in each of these areas.  For those who have already earned a Pharm.D., our two-year master’s program in pharmaceutical sciences allows you to specialize in health-system pharmacy.
