Transcript Pharm-D Essential for Pharmacy Students Pharmacy students may have to work another year to receive a new type of professional degree. The College of Pharmacy hoped to offer a professional Doctor of Pharmacy degree for students instead of a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy degree. The University of Texas-Austin and Texas Southern University awarded a Doctor of Pharmacy as an add-on degree after candidates completed a Bachelor of Science degree. The professional degree was awarded at most colleges of pharmacy throughout the nation, so UH had an obligation to students to award the professional degree, Thomas Lemke, associate dean of the College of Pharmacy, said. Many jobs required a professional (Pharm-D) degree, which UH did not offer, he said. The new type of degree was similar to the law and optometry degrees awarded. The Doctor of Pharmacy degree would take at least six years to be granted, as opposed to the five year plan. Lemke said the degree was almost essential for students, because without it, they werebeing shortchanged. 'Tenyearsagowewere product oriented, but today pharmacy is becoming more patient oriented," Lemke said. The college would be abletomaintainthesamebud- get, but admitting students to the program would be limited, Lemke said. -Kristine Fahrenholz Mustafa Lokhandwala Dean-College of Pharmacy History: A Humanity or A Science The History Department, which was listed under the College of Humanities, Fine Arts and Communication, attempted to become part of the College of Social Sciences. Because of a 23-7 faculty vote, the history department wouldbe considered for transfer to the College of Social Science, said James Pipkin, dean of the College of HFAC. Minorchangeswould affect students. History majors currently need six hours of fine arts credits, but if history became part of the social sciences, fine arts requirements would no longer be needed. Students who were seekinga history degree would not be affected. The majority of historians in the department considered history more of a social science discipline than a Harrell Rodgers Dean-College of Social Science humanities discipline. The history faculty believed research techniques would be more aligned with the techniques used by those in the College of Social Sciences. History faculty would also be more likely to work in conjunction with other departments in the college. Approximately six years ago, the History Department tried unsuccessfully to change to the College of Social Sciences. The faculty at the College of Social Science had not discussed the History Department's proposed integration. The history department was not included in the College of Social Sciences' reshaping plan, said Joe Carbonari, associate dean of the College of Social Sciences. -Kristine Fahrenholz PHARMACY SOCIAL SCIENCE 310 Academics Colleges 311
