Bachelor in Pharmaceutical Sciences

General

Program Description

We aim to foster human resources with the ability to positively develop working places of their own based on the collaboration of various fields of pharmacy, which we call "Interactive YAKUGAKUJIN".

The Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences was established in 1922 on the recommendation of Dr. Nagayoshi Nagai, the father of Japanese pharmaceutics. The Faculty has pursued a tradition of drug discovery as Japan’s only National University pharmaceutical department to originate from the engineering side. The Faculty has recently undertaken education and research with a greater focus on medical practice in close cooperation with the hospital and medical and dental faculties, leveraging the concentration of medical facilities at the Kuramoto Campus. The Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences offers two courses, a six-year course at the School of Pharmacy and a four-year course at the School of Pharmaceutical Technoscience. The School of Pharmacy trains pharmacists who are able to contribute to advanced healthcare and communities and the School of Pharmaceutical Technosciences provides unique education- research curriculum that educates drug discovery researchers with the advanced research capability and expertise in pharmaceuticals. Both courses foster people with diverse abilities in pharmacology. Thus, for example, the School of Pharmacy educates pharmacists with skills in fundamental research, while the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences educates researchers who are proficient in medical practice.
