Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Sciences Degree

UBC’s Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences announces a new Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Sciences (BPSc) Program. This exciting new bachelor’s degree will prepare graduates for technical positions in the discovery, development, and production areas of the pharmaceutical, life sciences, biotechnology and natural products industries.

The BPSc does not lead to a pharmacy degree, but provides instruction in the study of the sciences that contribute to drug discovery and development, including pharmacology, formulations sciences, nanomedicine, diagnostics, analytical chemistry and more.

As a small program, we aim for personalized instruction and career guidance with our talented team of outstanding professors and educators. We offer access to state-of-the art laboratories, industry placements in the final year, and a wide array of elective courses to supplement our core curriculum and provide personalized programs of study.
