» About the School of Pharmacy

Welcome to Orange County’s first School of Pharmacy!  

The vision for Chapman University School of Pharmacy (CUSP) is to enhance global health delivery and the biopharmaceutical and biomedical sciences. We are molding pharmacy practitioners and scientists who possess a deep scientific foundation, a passion for human health improvement and the caring concern needed to make a difference in people’s lives.

CUSP currently offers five program options for students: An accelerated Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.), the Master of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences (M.S.P.S.), the Doctor of Philosophy in Pharmaceutical Sciences (Ph.D.), the Pre-Pharmacy Freshman Early Assurance Program (FEAP), and the 4 + 1 Bachelor of Science/Master of Science program offered with the Schmid College of Science and Technology. We are proud to announce that our new “accelerated” Doctor of Pharmacy program is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and has received pre-candidate status approval from the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE). In August 2015, students matriculated into the professional portion of our program as the next important step in the accreditation process.  

CUSP is located at the state-of-the-art Harry and Diane Rinker Health Science Campus in beautiful Irvine, California.  Our program features:

  • Nationally Known & Recognized Faculty
  • High Teacher-to-Student Ratio
  • Small Class Sizes
  • Cutting Edge Research
  • World-Class Experiential Sites
  • Free iPad, MacBook & Electronic Books
  • Focus on Active Learning
