Program Description

THE BERNARD J. DUNN SCHOOL OF PHARMACY
The Bernard J. Dunn School of Pharmacy was created in 1995 to respond to the growing need for pharmacists in the health-care system. Shenandoah University responded to this need for additional pharmacists in a unique way. Combining new ideas in pharmacy education with the use of information technology, it created a new educational model that is even more relevant today. The School of Pharmacy offers a Doctorate of Pharmacy Degree (Pharm.D. degree) for traditional and nontraditional students. Dual degree options are available with MPH, MBA, MS PGPM.
