SUMMARY

Majoring in Pharmaceutical Sciences is not only a valuable choice, but usually a needed first step for undergrads wishing to pursue a career as a research pharmacologist, a pharmacist, or a pharmaceutical scientist. In fact, nationally, pharmaceutical sciences is somewhat popular coming in at the 120th most popular major. Last year, there were 2,748 pharmaceutical sciences diplomas received. In-state tuition for pharmaceutical sciences at private colleges is, on average, 3 times more spendy than their public rivals.

With only 58 universities offering pharmaceutical sciences there might be a smaller selection of institutions you can choose from. If you're hoping to surround yourself with other pharmaceutical sciences undergrads, consider looking at universities in Massachusetts which have more students admitted to pharmaceutical sciences than any other state. less precisely, the best region to get a degree in pharmaceutical sciences is in the New England region with University of Connecticut, MCPHS University, and Northeastern University best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick for the best conference to study pharmaceutical sciences is the Big West Conference with University of California-Davis representing the conference. That being said, our selection for the best university for pharmaceutical sciences is Northeastern University. You may also want to check out our list of the best colleges.

The objectively best school might not actually be the best school for every student. There are a bunch more factors to consider when selecting college. Stuff like campus amenities, transportation services, and food might sway your thoughts of which college to attend. Here at Authority, we've examined the pros and cons for you. If, as an example, you are intrigued by which pharmaceutical sciences university boasts the top campus, the answer is Northeastern University. If you are very interested in which university has the finest campus, we have a whole page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, student reviews, government databases, and more so we can compare every major in the United States in an unbiased and informative way. You can find our comprehensive list for the colleges with the best student life here and our choice of the university with the best student life for pharmaceutical sciences is University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. Are you curious why? Continue reading to learn more about Authority's top choices. Some of our decisions just might shock you.

If expense is a major factor in your decisions, you might consider avoiding Northeastern University. Northeastern University is the most expensive school for pharmaceutical sciences, at least regarding out of state attendance. We do have a page for the most expensive universities that could put the expense at Northeastern University into perspective. For more context, you might be interested to know that pharmaceutical sciences is the 180th most expensive degree in the United States, with an average cost of $31,600. On a broader scale, the most expensive state for pharmaceutical sciences in the nation is Michigan demonstrated with a tuition of $52,669 at the main college in Michigan University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. To zoom out even further, the most costly region of the U.S. for pharmaceutical sciences is the New England region which is best demonstrated with University of Connecticut with a cost of $36,466, Northeastern University with a cost of $52,420, and Western New England University with a cost of $35,454.

Our cheapest region for pharmaceutical sciences is the Southwest region which is represented by University of New Mexico-Main Campus with a cost of $21,716. On the bright side, the most affordable college for pharmaceutical sciences is University of the Sciences. Authority.org's full list of the most affordable schools can be found here.

In-state students can anticipate paying around $11,700 for a degree in pharmaceutical sciences. The price inflates intensely to a median of $30,300 for an out-of-state public-school student. On that note, our selection for the college representing the best value for pharmaceutical sciences: St. Louis College of Pharmacy. Through this link you will see our comprehensive list of the universities we see as being the best value overall. Do know, this discussion is based on being an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition is considered, but as we do not know what state(s) you might qualify for in-state tuition, we are approaching this discussion through out-of-state tuition costs.

Earnings for pharmaceutical sciences students differ widely, but two-years after leaving college students will typically earn around $100,900. There can be a lot of variation in earnings; top positions can enjoy pay up to $147,700. Right out of college, the lowest end positions within the pharmaceutical sciences field make $68,800, which isn't that bad. The highest earning grads from pharmaceutical sciences graduated from MCPHS University and if you want to find the colleges with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The general diversity of pharmaceutical sciences is decent, ranking within the 69th percentile of majors nationally. The college with the most composite diversity for pharmaceutical sciences is Northeastern University and here you can find our comprehensive list for the schools with the most diversity. The overall financial diversity of Pharmaceutical Sciences ranks only in the 49th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is greater than financial diversity, in the 61st percentile. White collegians make up the largest proportion at 57% of scholars studying pharmaceutical sciences. Additionally, 64% of undergrads seeking a pharmaceutical sciences degree are women.

The median ranking of pharmaceutical sciences' professors is 4 stars, which is right on the average for every major; which is a fine. If you are curious about the most popular pharmaceutical sciences instructor in the country, consider looking up Nicholas Manias from St Petersburg College. It might be a shock, but the top rated instructors of pharmaceutical sciences by student come from Saint Johns University. As we including data other than basic rankings it becomes clear that the university with comprehensively the best professors for pharmaceutical sciences is University of California-Davis. You will find an explanation of our evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, as well as some of the finest professors in the U.S.

Finally, the most difficult college to get into for pharmaceutical sciences is Northeastern University. While we are unsure why you would be interested, we do have an extensive list for the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, we hope you believe that considering the higher education world from context mainly formed from superlatives could be said to be the root of many of higher education's fundamental issues. We at Authority encourage you to look at some of our other pages on individual schools and explore some of our background pages on important things to think about as your school search continues.
