Application Process

Admission criteria for the M.S. in Pharmaceutical Sciences with emphasis in pharmacy administration and the Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Sciences with emphasis in pharmacy administration are the same. When completing the online graduate application, students should select which program to which they are applying.

Applicants must have a B.S. degree in pharmacy, B.S. degree in pharmaceutical sciences or higher. A degree in a discipline related to marketing, management, economics, epidemiology or other health-related field may also be considered for admission upon demonstration of a commitment to pursuing a career in the field of pharmacy or the pharmaceutical industry.

College transcripts with a minimum of a B average (3.0 on a 4.0 scale) are required.

Our program encourages but does not require either the GRE General Test or the GMAT. GRE/GMAT score submission is optional. You are NOT required to submit GRE/GMAT scores, and applications without GRE/GMAT scores will be given full consideration. You may choose to submit scores if you have them, and they will be considered by the admissions committee. Although you do not have to submit a GRE/GMAT score, opting to submit a strong test score (rather than submitting no score) may increase odds of receiving an invitation to interview, all other things being equal. In our current method of evaluating applicants, a relatively strong GRE/GMAT score could be used to offset a relatively lower GPA, but you would not be penalized for a low or unsubmitted GRE/GMAT score.

International applicants must demonstrate they meet the University of Mississippi’s requirements for English language proficiency, which can be found here.

Two (2) letters of recommendation, interview, resume, and statement of purpose are used to evaluate candidates. Interested students must apply to the M.S. or Ph.D. programs  online and may find additional application information from the University of Mississippi Graduate School website.
