B.S. in Chemistry/Dr of Pharmacy
(Dual-Degree Program)

B.S./Dr of Pharmacy

A collaborative 3+3 program with University of Maryland Eastern Shore.

The University of Maryland Eastern Shore and Frostburg State University have formed a new academic partnership offering students an accelerated track to becoming pharmacists in six years.

This innovative "3 + 3" program allows you to complete your undergraduate and doctoral studies seamlessly to reduce instruction time and costs.

Chemistry majors at FSU who meet the requirements and have strong academic credentials can gain preferential admission to UMES' professional degree program after just three years of undergraduate study. And because UMES offers year-round instruction, you can earn a doctorate in three years instead of the traditional four.

After these six years, you have two degrees--Bachelors of Science from FSU and a Doctorate of Pharmacy from UMES. Upon completion of the program, you are eligible to take the pharmacy licensing exam.
