Message from the Dean

A message from the dean of the School of Pharmacy

I would like to extend a heartfelt welcome to you from the School of Pharmacy at the University of Saint Joseph. You are choosing a profession that is among the most trusted professions in the world, if not the most trusted.

The University of Saint Joseph School of Pharmacy offers a unique three-calendar-year, co-educational, doctoral degree (Pharm.D.) program in Pharmacy. Students can enroll upon completion of a bachelor's degree, subject to required courses.

Our innovative, modified-block Pharm.D. curriculum has a proven record of increasing students' ability to master the didactic material along with providing students with a rich experiential education.  Additionally, this format allows students to enjoy the financial benefits of employment sooner, as students complete their Pharm.D in three calendar years rather than in the traditional four years.

We have assembled a world-class faculty and administrative team whose main focus and dedication is to your academic success. The faculty's diverse experience provides you with a breadth of experiential knowledge, further deepening your educational experience. Moreover, our student services division is dedicated to providing you with all necessary assistance to enhance your educational experience.


In keeping with the University's founding mission and values of service, the Pharmacy doctorate addresses a demonstrated need in the community and is supported by the University's core competencies. Specifically, the University's reputation for offering high-quality programs, especially in health and human services, is well established.

I invite you to visit our new facilities at the School of Pharmacy, 229 Trumbull Street, Hartford, CT 06103 or contact us at 860.231.5858 with any questions you may have after exploring our website. Thank you for your interest in our program, and we look forward to welcoming you to our caring and supportive learning environment at the University of Saint Joseph School of Pharmacy.
