A program preparing motivated students for professional careers in sciences, with an emphasis on successful admission into the Husson School of Pharmacy.
The Bachelor of Science in Chemistry degree integrates liberal arts and sciences with full preparation for technical employment in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, as well as in environmental, regulatory, and research institutions.
This pre-pharmacy track curriculum ensures smooth transition of qualified Husson students from the pre-professional to the professional stage of studies in the Husson University School of Pharmacy. Additionally, students who complete the pre-pharmacy track will meet most of the application requirements for admission into a school of medicine, osteopathy, dentistry, veterinary medicine, optometry, or podiatry. When choosing any specific professional school, students will work with their advisors to satisfy any possible additional course requirements of the particular school.
Students in the Chemistry program can earn a bachelor's degree in chemistry in a traditional four-year, 120-credit format. However, motivated students in the pre-pharmacy track may pursue an admission into the Husson School of Pharmacy (Pharm. D. program) after only two years or 59 credits of study.
Chemistry Program Track Curriculum
