What is the abbreviation the for Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy degree when placing the degree after one's name? If I have both a PharmD and a bachelor's in pharmacy degree should I place both or only the higher degree after my name in official correspondence or on a CV?

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.
