Graduate Programs Continue to Succeed

Committed to the economic vitality of the region and the State of Illinois and to producing well-prepared graduates with real-world in demand skills, Roosevelt moved strategically into the health care sector in 2009 with the opening of the College of Pharmacy, the first new college the University had opened in 40 years. Building on the success of the fully accredited College that graduated its first doctor of pharmacy class this past May, the University is placing an increased emphasis on programs in the biological, physical, chemical as well as the health and behavioral sciences. More than 2,600 applications have been received from throughout the country resulting in over 240 students admitted into the College of Pharmacy which operates at full capacity. Roosevelt also launched its first PhD, I/O psychology, at the Schaumburg Campus in 2013. Furthering our academic strength in the behavioral sciences, this program has grown by 80% over last year. There are outstanding faculty and state-of-the art facilities and laboratories at the Schaumburg Campus for these programs and expect they will grow substantially in the next few years.
