Undergraduate Program

The Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, which provides undergraduate education, consists of the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences (4-year program) and the Department of Pharmacy (6-year program).
The educational goal of the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences is to cultivate researchers and technical experts with a broad knowledge in the fields of life sciences and pharmaceutical sciences. The research skills for the drug development are further improved through a 2-year Master's program and a 3-year Ph.D. program at graduate school.
The main aim of education in the Department of Pharmacy is to develop students into skilled pharmacists with a sense of humanity and medical ethics, in addition to a solid foundation in basic life sciences and medical sciences. After completion of the undergraduate program, students will have a better chance to play an active part in research in the field of clinical pharmacy through a 4-year Ph.D. program at graduate school.
