Program Description

Harrison School of Pharmacy (HSOP) has been a part of Auburn University’s rich family history and tradition since 1885. Our program is built on the foundation of patient care as we aspire to educate tomorrow’s pharmacists. Aspiring students enter a professional program in which faculty/student relationships are built on mutual respect and trust. HSOP's trend-setting curriculum is fully integrated and prepares graduates who are ready to enter practice with personal character, confidence, and competence to assume leadership positions. HSOP is located in the Walker Building on the Auburn University campus. Students’ learning is positively affected by small group meeting rooms, high-tech lecture halls, a multipurpose skills lab, a pharmaceutical care center, and a pharmacy dispensary. The Mobile Satellite Campus is located on the campus of the University of South Alabama. The facilities are similar to those on the Auburn Campus and the extensive use of information technology facilitates the replication of Auburn's quality Pharm.D. program for Mobile Campus students.

The following video provides a glimpse inside the Harrison School of Pharmacy:

Auburn is a community dedicated to the University and its 31,000 students. The campus environment affords access to amenities that are typical for a major university, including a new performing arts center and SEC athletics.

Mobile is part of a metropolitan area of approximately 600,000 people and is near the lovely Alabama Gulf Coast. It is a city known for its rich history, including the celebration of Mardi Gras. The location of the Mobile satellite on the campus of the University of South Alabama provides students with the opportunity to experience campus life while completing their professional degree.
