About us

The WSU College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (CPPS) was founded in 1891, and has been accredited since 1912. We are a graduate and professional education college.

Our main degree programs include the Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical and Medical Sciences (starting Fall 2024), Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Pharmaceutical Sciences and Molecular Medicine. The college relocated from Pullman to the WSU Health Sciences campus in Spokane in December 2013. In 2015 the CPPS established the Doctor of Pharmacy program extension on the Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences campus in Yakima.

We currently have over 500 student pharmacists and graduate students, and over 3,600 alumni.
