FRIDAY, JULY 1, 2016 - 2:18 PM All News , Pharmacy

The Western New England University College of Pharmacy and the Bryant University College of Arts and Sciences entered into an articulation agreement on Thursday, April 14, 2016. The Agreement will provide qualified students from Bryant University an enhanced opportunity to pursue study in the Doctor of Pharmacy program at Western New England University's College of Pharmacy.

This represents the first articulation agreement for the University's College of Pharmacy. According to Dean Evan Robinson, “This is a very exciting collaboration and we could not be more pleased to have Bryant as our partners in our first articulation agreement.  We look forward to working with our Bryant University colleagues going forward.”

One unique aspect of the Bryant University experience is that it requires all Bryant students to minor in Business.  This will provide new opportunities to participating Bryant students, since the Western New England University College of Pharmacy offers two dual-degree programs (the Doctor of Pharmacy/MBA and the Doctorate of Pharmacy Master of Science in Organizational Leadership programs), in collaboration with the College of Business. These programs offer a powerful combination of pharmacy and business for those interested in the practice of pharmacy in a business or managerial environment. Graduates of the University's combined degree programs will receive two separate degrees, one in business and one in pharmacy.
