BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - William Carey University plans to open a school of pharmacy at its campus in Biloxi.

The school would be the second pharmacy program in the state. Ole Miss has a pharmacy school on its Oxford campus.

William Carey President Tommy King said Friday the pharmacy school is a dream come true for the university. He said it makes sense on the Coast.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1UfnGKi) the university has an ambitious start date for the school — fall 2018.

King says the school has $3.2 million for the startup but will need roughly $600,000 more, mainly to pay the salaries of teachers it has recruited.



School officials are considering putting it on the southeast side of the administration building.
