3+4 partnership

unsciences logoTake advantage of our new 3+4 partnership with the University of the Sciences and earn two degrees — both a BA in Biology from Rosemont and PharmD from USciences — in as little as seven years.  

Ranked by U.S. News & World Report as the area’s top pharmacy school, the USciences PharmD program mirrors the complex realities of modern practice, preparing students to thrive in today’s pharmacy environment. The curriculum builds on foundational knowledge and skills, encouraging proficiency in a range of subjects, from human disease and pharmacology to pharmaceutics, therapeutics, and pharmacoeconomics. Students benefit from hands-on experience gained through more than 300 clinical affiliation partner sites across the country—including some of the most renowned hospitals, medical centers, pharmaceutical companies, and regulatory agencies.

With the partnership, USciences will reserve up to five percent of the seats in their PharmD program for Rosemont students who meet the requirements.

Eligible students will spend three years at Rosemont before transferring to the USciences’ four-year PharmD program. While matriculated at USciences, students will receive their BA in Biology from Rosemont once they have successful completed all requirements.
