A Pharmacy Master’s degree in the USA is an industry currently in high demand globally. Be it the scope of pharmacists, an excellent educational environment, or a high-paying scale upon graduation, you will get countless reasons to pursue your M Pharm in the USA. A typical master's degree in Pharmacy in the USA takes around two to three years to complete depending upon your course selection and the university. 


Bachelor's Degree
A bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university or an equivalent degree with a minimum B grade. A bachelor's degree in biochemistry, molecular biology, chemistry, engineering, pharmacy, pharmaceutical sciences, etc., is also favored. A minimum 3.0 GPA is preferred with your overall quality of transcripts.

Language Test Scores -
The language test scores are required for all international students to get into universities in the USA for Pharmacy masters admission. The minimum scores per two popular tests are TOEFL (80-100) and IELTS (6.0-7.0). Also, ensure you appear in the tests at least 6 to 8 weeks before the deadline to get the scores.

GRE Score -
The GRE score is not essential for applying for MS in pharmaceutics in the USA. Most colleges and degrees have their own minimum acceptable score ranges. For an MBA in pharmaceutical management in the USA, a score of 650 or above is considered. Whereas for other master courses, a score of 600 or more is needed. However, some universities also offer admission to MS in pharmacy in the USA without GRE.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any more questions.
