Pre-pharmacy

Common majors: chemistry, biology

As a pharmacist you’ll do more than fill prescriptions. You’ll monitor medication regimens and advise others on the effects and uses of medications, as well as their interactions with other drugs. You’ll also have a role in diagnosing acute ailments and consulting for nutrition and disease prevention. The pre-pharmacy track will prepare you for entrance into a Doctor of Pharmacy program—the required degree for all practicing pharmacists.
