The following coursework includes the minimum requirements to fulfill the course prerequisites for the Doctor of Pharmacy program in the Husson School of Pharmacy. Note: Chemistry, Biology and Math courses taken more than five (5) years ago are not routinely accepted for meeting pre-pharmacy requirements and will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

Pre-Pharmacy Program of Entry Option

While students may complete the pre-pharmacy requirements in only two years, Husson also offers the B.S. in Chemistry/B.S. in Biology - Pre-pharmacy Tracks*.  Either track will provide a student with the opportunity to earn an undergraduate science degree, while building a strong foundation in preparation for admission into the School of Pharmacy. Enrolling in either program ensures you will complete the minimum requirements to fulfill course prerequisites for Husson's Doctor of Pharmacy program.

* The extra courses found within the B.S. in Chemistry/B.S. in Biology - Pre-Pharmacy track are not necessary for meeting the Pre-Pharmacy requirements, but will provide a stronger science background for students.
