Integrated BS/MS or BS/PhD Programs in Chemistry, Biochemistry or Pharmacognosy

The integrated BS/MS or BS/PhD program gives you the opportunity to obtain a graduate degree in less time than a traditional degree program. Chemical Sciences students admitted to this program are able to begin their graduate coursework while completing their undergraduate degree.

Students may apply for the program as entering transfer students or as current University of the Sciences undergraduate students (prior to their 4th year if in a B.S. track, 5th year if in a professional master’s degree track, or 6th year if in the PharmD track). Students are expected to meet the following criteria for admission:

  • minimum cumulative GPA of 3.25/4.00
  • minimum SAT score of 1200 total with a minimum individual verbal and math score of 550 if you are not matriculated in an undergraduate or first professional degree program for at least one academic year (one fall and spring semester).
  • have three letters of recommendation from college faculty
  • obtain signature of the student's current University of the Sciences program director signifying that he/she has discussed the implications on how this program might impact the student's undergraduate studies

If you meet the above qualifications and would like to be considered for this program, please submit a graduate application online or mail to:
