    No. You study pharmacy to become a pharmacist, someone who dispenses pharmaceuticals at a pharmacy (e.g. CVS, Walgreen's). You study pharmaceutical science to become a scientist who works in research and development or manufacturing at a pharmaceutical company (e.g. Eli Lilly, Merck, Glaxo). You cannot become a pharmacist by taking pharmaceutical science.
