In 1913, the School of Pharmacy was formed. The School became the College of pharmacy in 1921. In 1987, the Division of Nutrition and Dietetics was established within the College and in 1994, the College changed its name to the College of Pharmacy and Nutrition.
The College vision is to promote optimal nutrition and rational use of medication - key elements in the prevention and treatment of disease - and to serve society by meeting the challenges of a changing health care system, supporting greater emphasis on community-based, patient-centered care.
The College offers programs leading to the Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy, Bachelor of Science in Nutrition, Master's and Ph.D. in Pharmacy, and Master's and Ph.D. in Nutrition. Our mission is to prepare graduates to enter the practices of pharmacy or dietetics, or to pursue careers in pharmaceutical or nutritional sciences. Employment opportunities are excellent.
