Answer

There does not appear to be a standard abbreviation for the bachelor of science in pharmacy degree.  I found a variety of abbreviations including BS in Pharmacy, BS Pharm and BSP.  BSP appears to be used in Canada. 

According to the AMA Manual of Style, 10th ed., degrees below the master's are not listed unless the bachelor's degree is the highest degree earned.
