University of the Sciences

The roots of University of the Sciences reach back to 1821, when the institution was founded as America's first pharmacy college, the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy. Today, USciences continues to build on that esteemed reputation and is now home to over 25 undergraduate and 25 graduate programs. Our nearly 2,700 students have enrolled in our premier programs in the health sciences, ranging across pharmacy to pre-med to healthcare business and health policy.This is a university that traverses almost the entire range of the health sciences. Students may study traditional sciences such as biology and chemistry or pursue demanding careers in physical and occupational therapy. They may explore fields such as pharmacognosy on the frontiers of learning, or they may be preparing for a life shaping policy for medical and governmental institutions. With careers in healthcare continuing to grow, a USciences education not only makes for a rewarding choice, but an investment in the future.Key to our distinctive education is a tradition of hands-on research at every level. Our undergraduates participate in highly engaging research in their earliest studies. Our alumni have contributed to progress in every dimension of the health sciences, from pioneering the use of x-rays in the 19th century to unlocking the genetic code in the 20th to discovering countless new medications. Recent graduates have continued this legacy as founders of pharmaceutical companies and companies serving the pharmaceutical and biotech industries.What is new and different at University of the Sciences? Recent new programs include a bachelor's degree neuroscience and a graduate certificate in brewing science. But what is truly new every day is our students' deepening perspective on how they can make a difference in the critically important arenas of science and healthcare.At University of the Sciences, our students are proven everywhere.
