The L. S. Skaggs College of Pharmacy at Idaho State University trains pharmacists and scholars while valuing integrity, access, inclusiveness, collaboration, intellectual curiosity, and accountability. Equity and inclusivity are fundamental to our pursuit of excellence in developing caring and collaborative pharmacists, psychopharmacologists, and scientists who improve health outcomes through transformative research and patient-centered care. 

The primary degree offered by the College is the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) that prepares students to become pharmacists. The PharmD degree is delivered synchronously in Pocatello and Meridian, Idaho and Anchorage, Alaska.  

In addition, the College offers a Masters and a PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences. The Master of Science in Clinical Psychopharmacology provides licensed psychologists with training in the use of medication as part of the treatment of psychological disorders.
