Program Description

Howdy future Aggie!

The Texas A&M Rangel College of Pharmacy offers a four year Pharm.D. program that is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE). Since opening in 2006, the College has grown to include two campuses, Kingsville and College Station, and has climbed in the Best Grad Schools and Pharmacy Schools rankings compiled by the U.S. News & World Report.

As the first health professions program established south of San Antonio, the Texas A&M Rangel College of Pharmacy proudly pursues its mission to recruit and train talented and caring pharmacists who provide excellent patient care and serve as catalysts for advancing the practice of pharmacy. Students enrolled in our program begin applying what they have learned in the classroom in their second year by participating in community practice and hospital pharmacy rotations. This experiential learning continues in the third year and culminates with completing at least six, six week rotations during the fourth year.

Future students may be accepted into the Kingsville or College Station campus of the Texas A&M Rangel College of Pharmacy; both of which have unique training and educational opportunities. The Kingsville campus is located at Texas A&M University-Kingsville (TAMUK) and the College Station campus is located at Texas A&M University. Both campuses offer a wide-range of student services, extra-curricular activities and student organizations.

Aspects of our Pharm.D. program to consider when deciding on a pharmacy school:
• Low tuition and fees
• High quality education
• Experiential education
• Interprofessional
• Student support

We are excited that you are considering the Texas A&M Irma Lerma Rangel College of Pharmacy to pursue your pharmacy education and encourage you to contact us at if you have any questions. Become a part of the Aggie Family and apply today!
