For 150 years, St. Louis College of Pharmacy has been educating future pharmacy innovators. Located in one of the world's leading biomedical, research, and patient-care centers, the College provides exceptional education, career, and research opportunities for students. U.S. News & World Report ranks the College as one of the top four private colleges of pharmacy in the country.

The College's academic program includes three years of undergraduate work followed by a four-year professional program leading to a Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree. The innovative curriculum prepares students for the expanding role of pharmacists on health care teams and includes significant study in the sciences, including basic and advanced courses in biology, chemistry, and pharmaceutical sciences as well as courses in the liberal arts and social and behavioral sciences. Students are primarily admitted from high school and can choose a specialty, such as an MBA or graduate certificate in business administration, to prepare them for the wide variety of research interests and career options available for pharmacists.

St. Louis College of Pharmacy's current six-year curriculum integrates courses in liberal arts and sciences with a professional program leading to a Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree and is as unique as the College itself. Students are admitted directly from high school into the College's pre-professional program and progress into the professional program without additional testing or reapplying, as long as progression requirements are met.
