Pharmacy

Hello and welcome to the William Carey University School of Pharmacy website. The faculty, staff, and the University administration would like to thank you for your interest in our new School of Pharmacy.  We invite you to take a few minutes to learn more about the William Carey University School of Pharmacy family and our commitment to academic excellence, our school’s family, the Gulf Coast community, and to the profession of pharmacy.

Our School of Pharmacy offers the only accelerated three-year Doctor of Pharmacy program on the coast from New Orleans to Pensacola. Located on the Tradition Campus of William Carey University in the city of Biloxi, the faculty and staff look forward to serving the regional needs of the Gulf Coast, the state of Mississippi, and surrounding states.

The School of Pharmacy plans to enroll 64 students in its inaugural class, a class size that will provide a 10:1 ratio of students to faculty.  The School of Pharmacy will move into a new building, complete with state of the art classroom and laboratory space that will provide a comfortable and stimulating environment to learn.

Thank you again for your interest in the William Carey University School of Pharmacy.  You will find important admission and application information below.  Please feel free to contact us at pharmacyadmissions@wmcarey.edu if you have any questions regarding our admissions process or pharmacy@wmcarey.edu if you have any other general questions.  We look forward to partnering with you to become an educational leader in expanding and enhancing the future of pharmacy.
