Founded in 1881, Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (ACPHS) is home to more than 1,700 students and approximately 150 full- and part-time faculty. The College offers an array of degree programs designed for students focused on helping people live healthier lives. In addition to its Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) program, ACPHS offers four-year bachelor's degrees in Biomedical Technology, Chemistry, Health and Human Sciences, Microbiology, and Pharmaceutical Sciences.

Students may also pursue joint degrees in the fields of medicine, law, and business through cooperative agreements with area institutions.

Much of what we are able to offer as a College is made possible by the generous support of our alumni and friends. Alumni, corporations and community partners play a vital role in helping ACPHS remain a strong and vibrant institution by making a range of contributions � from serving as student mentors to helping fund scholarships to volunteering at campus events. Student scholarships, memorial gifts and the Annual Fund are some of the many ways to support the College and help keep an ACPHS education affordable for our students and their families. Please contact us or visit the appropriate pages in this section of the web site if you are interested in learning more about these opportunities. We encourage alumni to also visit our Alumni Resources page, which contain exclusive benefits and information related to job openings, financial planning, how to receive an ACPHS alumni e-mail address or track down a former classmate. Whatever you do, we hope that you stay in touch with us and continue to support the College and its students.
