Daily Herald report

Students at Roosevelt University's College of Pharmacy in Schaumburg who are studying for the three-year Doctor of Pharmacy degree will have an opportunity beginning in the fall to simultaneously earn a Master's Degree in Public Health from Elmhurst College.

The special dual-degree agreement reached this month between the two institutions paves the way for eligible College of Pharmacy (PharmD) students to take courses through Elmhurst and to apply pharmacy coursework taken at Roosevelt toward Elmhurst's Master of Public Health (MPH) degree.

For more information, contact Bud Beatty at Roosevelt University at (847) 619-7287 or, or James Berry at Elmhurst College at (630) 617-3581 or
