Hurry! Classes Start August 20, 2018!

Batavia, New York - Recent surveys report pharmacists earn on average between $110,000 and $130,000 per year working in a variety of fields and in the coming years, experts predict just over 3% job growth in the industry. The news gets even better - there are still seats available in the courses required to get started this fall at Genesee Community College! 

Interested students at Genesee Community College can take advantage of the new affiliation agreement with the University at Buffalo School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences to earn a doctor of pharmacy degree in less time! The affiliation agreement, structured as a “2+4” agreement allows enrolled students to complete two years of undergraduate study in GCC’s A.S. Liberal Arts and Sciences: Natural Science, Biology Concentration and then apply and complete just four years at UB’s School of Pharmacy and graduate with a Doctor of Pharmacy degree. The UB Pharmacy School, which is the first in the SUNY system, is ranked among the top pharmacy schools in the U.S. and one of the top departments in the world in pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and biopharmaceutics.
