Ursuline College Partners With the School of Pharmacy at Duquesne University

Ursuline College, the educational institution for women in Pepper Pike, Ohio, has entered into an agreement with the School of Pharmacy at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. Under the agreement students will be able to earn a bachelor’s degree and a doctor of pharmacy degree in seven years, rather than the usual eight years.

Under the agreement, women would study chemistry at Ursuline College for three years. The women would then spend four years in the doctor of pharmacy program at Duquesne.

Sister Christine De Vinne, president of Ursuline College, stated that “we at Ursuline College are delighted to be able to offer future pharmacists this chance to begin their college career with us, in a women-focused, supportive environment. After three years at Ursuline, students will be well prepared to embrace the professional opportunity of the Duquesne doctoral program. They will eliminate one year of college expenses and enter their careers one year sooner.”
