Bachelor of Science degree in Pharmaceutical Science (Pre-Pharmacy)
The Bachelor of Science degree program in Pharmaceutical Science (Pre-Pharmacy) is designed to prepare students who have the goal of seeking admission into the South College School of Pharmacy (SCSOP). The Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Science curriculum consists of courses that fulfill the pre-requisites for application to the SCSOP. The first two years of course work include a broad scope of courses with a heavy emphasis on the sciences. The third year of the Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences is actually the first year of the SCSOP Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program. Following successful completion of the first year of the PharmD program, the Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences (Pre-Pharmacy) will be awarded.
The curriculum and sequence of course offerings leading to the Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Science (Pre-Pharmacy) have been planned to support the goals described above. The focus of the first two years of the curriculum is on establishing a firm foundation in the general studies disciplines, with a focus on the basic sciences. The remainder of the curriculum builds on this focus by offering courses concentrating on the pharmaceutical (e.g., medicinal chemistry, pharmacology) and biological sciences (e.g., immunology, genetics).
