Established in the sunny lands of Piscataway, the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy represents the pharmacy institution of the Rutgers University. It is a public institution that trains not more than 1,000 students at a time.
The pharmacy school was founded in 1892. It has not always been part of the Rutgers University. In fact, the two institutions merged in 1927. Until 1971, the school operated in a different building. The current name was given in the memory of Ernest Mario, in 2003.
Tuition fees depend on whether students come from New Jersey or a different state. When they come from New Jersey, the costs range between $72,000 and $75,000. On the other hand, nonresidents will have to pay $139,000 to $144,000. The costs for onsite accommodation can drastically influence the total fees.
Although it does not really train too many students at the same time, the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy has a good employment rate, as well as a good reputation, without any negative incidents throughout its history.
Most students hunt the PharmaD degree, but they also have access to pre-college, Master’s and Ph.D. programs. They can study chemical biology, pharmaceutics, medicinal chemistry, pharmacology and toxicology, among several others.
