Salve Regina and University of Saint Joseph Create Pharmacy Doctorate Program

Salve Regina University, a Council member, partnered with the University of Saint Joseph to create a joint program for pharmacy students.

The program allows undergraduate students in the biology or biochemistry majors to apply for a six-year bachelor’s and pharmacy degree program. The students can apply during their 3rd year of study at Salve Regina and will complete the pharmacy degree at the University of Saint Joseph. The program provides students with the opportunity to earn two degrees in a cohesive manner and have access to pharmaceutical jobs post-graduation.

“The [program] is a wonderful opportunity for those students seeking a career in the pharmacy industry but also desiring a strong foundation in either biology or biochemistry,” said Susan Meschwitz, associate professor and chairwoman of the chemistry department at Salve Regina. “The well-rounded liberal arts education [is] highly valued by employers.”

The New England Council congratulates the universities on their this new partnership and wishes the students who participate much success.. Read more in Providence Business Journal.
