In the state of South Carolina there are currently three different colleges that provide programs and degrees in pharmacy, giving students a choice of where they might like to attend school in their pursuit of a diploma.

The schools available are the South Carolina College of Pharmacy at the University of South Carolina, Presbyterian College, and South University-Columbia Campus.

Of the three pharmacy schools, all are fine institutions.

However, the South Carolina College of Pharmacy at the University of South Carolina is a nationally ranked school, ranking in the top 100 schools in the country for their program and may have more prestige and more to offer.

Pharmacists on average in the state of South Carolina receive a salary just slightly lower than the national average for a pharmacist in the United States. In 2013, the average salary for a pharmacist in the state was $105,000.00, just a bit lower than that that of the national average. Keep in mind that the average does not consider experience and time in the industry, the type of position offered and the company providing the job, all of which can be factors that can make the salary higher or lower in actuality. In either case, the opportunity exists in South Carolina for a certified pharmacist to earn a good living.
