SENIOR YEAR.-Materia Medica, IV. Structural and Systematic Botany, II. Organic and Pharmaceutical Chemistry, VI. Practical Pharmacy, VIII. Latin (optional).

The degree of Graduate in Pharmacy is conferred upon students who complete the course satisfactorily, and comply with the conditions enumerated below.

Instruction in Latin.

Instruction is given once a week in the rudiments of the Latin language, and in such technical use of it as will enable the students to read physicians' prescriptions and Latin pharmacopoeias with accuracy. Attendance upon this class is optional, but as the correct reading of prescriptions forms a part of the practical examination for the degree, it is important that students whose early training in this subject has been neglected should make up their deficiency during the college course, if they have not done so before.

Assistants in drug stores who are deficient in Latin, whether students of the College or not, are invited to join this class, and pharmacists in this city will do well to direct the attention of their employés to this opportunity.


Members of the Alumni Association, appointed by the Board of Trustees of the College, will conduct class reviews on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings. These reviews serve to impress important facts and principles upon the memory; they promote inquiry, incite a generous emulation, and add to the enjoyment, as well as to the profit, of associated study.




UNITED STATES DISPENSATORY-Wood, Remington and Sadtler.

PRACTICAL PHARMACY-Remington, Parrish, Proctor.






CHEMISTRY-Richter, Fowne.




PHARMACOGRAPHIA-Flückiger and Hanbury.


Examinations are held bi-monthly during the session, and the Faculty are assisted in conducting them by four committees of the Board of Trustees, one for each chair.

Junior Examinations.

Junior students whose rating, in the bi-monthly examinations above referred to, is found to show a satisfactory degree of progress, will receive certificates entitling them to admission to the Senior class at any subsequent session of the College.

Juniors failing to receive a sufficiently high rating to warrant their admission to the Senior class on that evidence alone, will be required to pass at the commencement of the next session the Junior examination in those branches in which their rating at the bi-monthly examinations may have been insufficient. If the results of this examination shall show that they have by study made good their previous deficiency, they will then be permitted to enter the Senior class.

First-course students from other pharmaceutical colleges, who desire to enter the Senior class of this College, must produce sufficient evidence of their fitness; otherwise, they will be required to pass the Junior examination above referred to.

Divided Junior Examinations.

All students who have attended one full course of lectures in the Junior class may, at the end of it, select from the parts into which the Junior examination is divided (botany, pharmacy, chemistry, Latin, materia medica, committee) any number, not less than three, in which they may desire to be examined, written notice of the selection to be given to the Dean of the Faculty on or before September 1. If they pass in all of the branches selected, the results will be placed to their credit; and, at the close of the following term, they may in like manner make application to come forward in the remaining parts of the examination; and if they pass also in these, they will be entitled to join the Senior class. If, at the first partial examination, any should fail in any branch selected, they will be reëxamined in this during their second year as Juniors.

A student who takes out all the Junior tickets, and then elects to divide the examination in this way, may attend the second year on these tickets as well as the first, but cannot enter the Senior class until he has passed the Junior examination in all branches.

Senior Examination.

The Senior class will be examined at the end of the session, for the degree of Graduate in Pharmacy, in chemical synthesis and analysis, toxicology, systematic botany, materia medica, chemical and microscopical characters of drugs, the uses and doses of drugs, theoretical and practical pharmacy, and the translation of recipes from Latin into English, and from English into Latin. The practical examination will include the actual compounding of prescriptions, and the manipulation of drugs and chemicals, in presence of the examiners.

Divided Senior Examination.

Senior students who have attended at least two full courses of lectures may, at the end of the Senior course, select from the parts into which the Senior examination is divided (materia medica, including the identification of specimens, pharmacy, chemistry, botany, committee and practical examination) those in which they may desire to be examined, written notice of the selection

to be given to the Dean of the Faculty on or before September 1. If they pass in any of the branches selected, the results will be placed to their credit, provided they pass the remainder of the examination within the next two years; and at the close of the following term they may in like manner make application for examination in the remaining branches; and if they thus complete their examination in accordance with the rules of the College, they will be recommended for the degree of Graduate in Pharmacy.


Every candidate for the degree of GRADUATE IN PHARMACY must be of good moral character, must have attained the age of twenty-one years, have attended two full courses in each of the departments of this College, or one course (the Senior) in this, after a course in some other recognized pharmaceutical college, and have had four years of experience in a pharmacy where prescriptions are compounded. No special examination will be held for candidates for the degree, but only an examination at the end of the regular course.

The candidate must present a thesis to the Dean on or before September 1. The thesis must be an original dissertation upon some subject relating to pharmacy or to collateral branches, or upon a chemical analysis conducted by the candidate. It must be wholly the production of the candidate alone, must be in the English language, and be written on the regular thesis paper furnished by the College, so as to admit of being bound uniformly with others in volumes for preservation.

The title or subject of the thesis must be sent to the Dean on or before June 1, to be approved or rejected by the Faculty and Trustees. Students are advised to select a suitable subject as early as possible, and to complete all the necessary experiments connected with it during the winter vacation, so as to be able to give their full time to study during the remainder of the session. The professors and other officers of the College will, if called upon, aid students in the selection of an appropriate subject.

Should the candidate fail to pass a satisfactory examination, the thesis will be returned, provided the author apply for it within thirty days after the close of the examination.

Candidates must be recommended jointly by the Faculty and Examining Board to the Regents of the University of California, by whom the degree is conferred.

Graduates of such medical colleges as are recognized by the American Medical Association will be permitted to present themselves for examination for the degree after one year's attendance at this College, provided they have complied with all the other conditions of graduation.


Certificates of Proficiency, in chemistry, materia medica, botany, or pharmacy, will be granted to any student of the Senior class who passes satisfactory examinations in any of those subjects, and such certificates will count

towards the examination for the degree of Graduate in Pharmacy; except that no student will be examined in pharmacy until proof is received by the Trustees and Examiners that the candidate has had at least three and a half years' experience in a pharmacy where prescriptions are compounded.

No certificate will be issued of proficiency in pharmacy unless examinations in all the subjects included under that title have been satisfactorily passed.

No Certificate of Proficiency in any subject will be issued unless the applicant shall have attained as high a percentage of credit in such subject as is required in the general average.

Certificates of Proficiency in pharmacy for candidates under twenty-one years of age, for those who have not had four years' experience, or for those who have passed in chemistry, materia medica, or botany, must be paid for at the rate of two dollars each.


Three prizes will be awarded to the students who pass the most satisfactory and complete examinations in all the branches at the close of the session, as follows:

A GOLD MEDAL will be presented to the Senior student who attains the highest general average.

BOOKS or APPARATUS to the value of twenty dollars will be presented to the Senior student who stands second in the general average.

BOOKS or APPARATUS to the value of twenty dollars, offered by the Alumni Association, will be presented to the Senior student who shall pass the best examination in practical pharmacy.

TICKETS TO THE SENIOR COURSE will be given to the Junior student who attains the highest average standing in the bi-monthly examinations during the Junior course.


Graduates in Pharmacy of this College are permitted to present themselves for examination for the degree of Doctor of Medicine in the Medical Department of the University of California, and in the Cooper Medical College, after attending either of these schools two years, instead of three, as required of other students. The fees to be paid by Graduates in Pharmacy have been proportionately reduced. This generous concession is a gratifying evidence of the value of pharmaceutical instruction, and should not be overlooked by young men who design to make the practice of medicine their ultimate object.


The Alumni Association was organized in 1882, to further the interests of the College and promote fellowship among its members, especially by bringing the more recent graduates into closer acquaintance with the earlier. The annual meeting is held in November.

The final-examination fee is to be paid when candidates present themselves for examination for the degree, or when they exchange the Certificate of Proficiency for the Diploma.

THE MATRICULATION AND LECTURE TICKETS must be taken out by each student in person, and must be indorsed by the several professors; the former within fifteen, and the latter within thirty days from the beginning of the session.

MEMBERS AND GRADUATES of the College, and students who have attended two sessions in it, are admitted to the lectures free. Students of any college in the University of California and of the Cooper Medical College will be admitted to the lectures by matriculating and paying for the matriculation ticket only.

OTHER STUDENTS, not intending to pursue pharmacy as their vocation, will be admitted to the lectures or to any course they may desire to attend, by paying the matriculation fee and that of each course taken. They may be examined in the special subject or subjects taken with the students of the Senior class, and Certificates of Proficiency will be awarded to them on the same conditions as to regular students. But such special students will not, in any case, be eligible for the degree of Graduate in Pharmacy.

Board and Lodging.

Good board and lodging can be obtained in San Francisco for from $20 to $30 a month. Single furnished rooms may be had, without board, for from $5 to $10 a month, and restaurants abound in which good meals can be had for from 15 cents to 40 cents each.


Students frequently find temporary employment in retail drug stores, and in wholesale and manufacturing establishments. The remuneration is small, but many of the students prefer to do some practical work in pharmacy to supplement the instruction received in College. The Dean of the Faculty will register the names of students who desire situations, and all the officers of the College will use their influence to find employment for them.
