2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

Pre-pharmacy


Requirements


The basic pharmacy B.S. degree requires five years of full-time study. Some programs combine one year of pre-pharmacy education with four years in pharmacy school; others combine two years of pre-pharmacy study with three years in pharmacy school. Many pharmacy schools now offer the Doctor of Pharmacy degree either as 5 + 2 (B.S. in pharmacy followed by two additional years in pharmacy school), or as a 2 + 4 sequence (two years of pre-pharmacy followed by four years in the Pharm. D. program). Because of the wide variety of pharmacy programs and the narrow latitude for electives in pre-pharmacy programs, it is essential that course selection be made carefully and in consultation with an adviser.

One-Year Program


  • Appropriate electives selected in consultation with adviser to bring total to 30 semester hours.

Additional Courses for Two-Year Programs


  • Appropriate electives in social sciences and humanities selected in consultation with adviser to bring total to 60 semester hours.
