Founded in 1900, the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) is the national organization representing pharmacy education in the United States. The mission of the Association is to both represent and be an advocate for all segments of the academic community in the profession of pharmacy. AACP is comprised of all accredited colleges and schools with pharmacy degree programs accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education, including approximately 57,000 professional degree students, 5,700 students enrolled in graduate studies and more than 5,600 full-time faculty. There is at least one pharmacy school in every state but two (Alaska and Delaware). A Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree is awarded after completion of a four year professional degree program following a minimum of two years of collegiate pre-professional study. Accreditation of bachelor of science degree programs (B.S. Pharmacy), requiring a minimum of five years of college study, ended in 2004.
