Ben and Maytee Fisch College of Pharmacy

Prerequisites

Prerequisite Courses 

The following pre-pharmacy courses are considered a DRAFT document and may be updated based on the recommendations of the College of Pharmacy faculty.

Pre-pharmacy courses provide a solid foundation for the Pharm.D. curriculum and a well-rounded general education. The Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education recommends chemistry, biology, mathematics, information and communication technologies, physical sciences, and general education courses as a foundation for the Pharm.D. curriculum (ACPE 2011, Standard 17.1). Additionally, for students entering pharmacy school in 2016 or later, the ACPE draft standards recommend economics as a pharmacy pre-requisite.
