College of Pharmacy

Pharm.D./MPH or Pharm.D./MHA

Pair your Pharm.D. with a master's degree in Public Health to enhance your clinical pharmacy education with studies focused on health promotion, policy, epidemiology, or administration.

Earning a Pharm.D. concurrently with a Master of Public Health (MPH) or Master of Health Administration (MHA) degree is ideal for a pharmacist who seeks to add public health principles to professional patient care studies. The combination of these degrees is highly desirable for students who plan to pursue a career in local, state or national health-related agencies or practice environments such as hospitals and health systems, managed-care or community health organizations.

Students can choose from one of the following tracks:

  • Pharm.D. / MPH in Health Promotion, Education and Behavior
  • Pharm.D. / MPH in Epidemiology
  • Pharm.D. / MPH in Health Services Policy & Management
  • Pharm.D. / MHA

The Pharm.D./MPH and Pharm.D./MHA degrees are offered concurrently between the University of South Carolina's College of Pharmacy and the Arnold School of Public Health
