Change lives for the better.

No PCAT Required. Tuition Under $40K per year.

Being a part of another person’s care and health is quite a responsibility. That’s why our experienced faculty will holistically prepare you to take on that responsibility — academically, professionally and personally. We’ll equip you to be a lifelong expert in the safe and effective use of medicines and to be a respected member of health care teams alongside physicians, nurses and others. It’s also why our challenging curriculum is filled with important ethical and relevant discussions. Rooted in the Christian faith, we are committed to developing pharmacists who not only know how to execute in their field but see a deeper level of caring as essential to their work and the communities they serve.
