HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia State University and Marshall University are collaborating to help students interested in earning a doctorate in pharmacy.
The schools signed a memorandum of understanding Monday at Marshall's pharmacy school in Huntington.
The agreement allows qualifying students at West Virginia State to enroll at Marshall's pharmacy school and receive credit for up to 72 hours of college-level coursework. In addition, students who complete two years of pharmacy course work at Marshall will become eligible to receive a bachelor's degree in chemistry or biology from West Virginia State.
West Virginia State provost and vice president for academic affairs R. Charles Byers says the agreement will create more educational and career options for West Virginia State graduates.
