Bachelor of Arts in Pharmacy Studies (BAPS) Program Description

Students earning the Bachelor of Arts in Pharmacy Studies (BAPS) degree attain broad and thorough knowledge in the liberal arts and basic sciences, as well as specialized education in the field of pharmacy, both academic and experiential in nature. The BAPS degree also acknowledges the achievement of students who complete a minimum of four years of college education, including rigorous course work in the basic and pharmacy sciences, on their path to the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree. Students with a BAPS degree are well positioned to take advantage of numerous educational and career opportunities in diverse areas, including positions in pharmacy, health care, or medicine, or may continue on in research, business, and academia. This degree is not designed to lead to licensure as a professional pharmacist and is available only to students currently enrolled in the Pharm.D. program at the UH Hilo DKICP.


Students must apply and be accepted to the Doctor of Pharmacy degree program (Pharm.D.) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo DKICP. In other words, this degree is only available to Pharm.D. students. Complete application instructions for the Pharm.D. program can be found online.
