Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Sciences

Admission Information

Our graduate program in pharmaceutical sciences has been awarding graduate degrees since 1931. Formal course requirements are flexible to tailor programs to individual needs.


  • Bachelor's degree
  • GPA of 3.0 (out of 4.0)
  • Official GRE scores (less than 5 years old)
  • Official TOEFL scores for international applicants

Although not a prerequisite, completion of an undergraduate course in biochemistry is highly desirable. Students admitted to the program without this course may take it at WSU during the first year of graduate school.
