Pharmaceutical sciences is the 120th most popular degree in America, with 2,748 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #121 Interior Design, and narrowly lost to #119 Art History.

The degree is offered at a total of 58 colleges across the nation, and is the 252nd most widely offered degree. It is only offered at 3% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.

It is also worth noting that one half of colleges offering pharmaceutical sciences are public making it a pretty accessible field.

The new england produces the most pharmaceutical sciences graduates, largely led by University of Connecticut, while it’s the Big West Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, Massachusetts ranks highest, with particular help from MCPHS University and Northeastern University.

All that being said, no individual school produces more pharmaceutical sciences graduates than Auburn University, which graduated 309 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study pharmaceutical sciences). More students studied pharmaceutical sciences as a percentage of total students at St. Louis College of Pharmacy than any other college.
