The pre-pharmacy student spends his/her first two to three years at ESU taking the necessary core courses in order to satisfy the professional school entrance requirements. These core courses and other co-requisite are unique for each professional school.
The student applies to a pharmacy school as a transfer student. Students may indicate their intent to graduate with a Bachelor of Arts degree in either biochemistry or chemistry from ESU before transferring to the pharmacy school of choice.
Upon completion of their second professional year at pharmacy school, they can transfer these credits from the pharmacy school back to ESU in order to fulfill the remaining credits for the Bachelor of Arts degree. Students may also declare a major in chemistry or related fields, finish the bachelor’s degree at ESU, then transfer to a pharmacy school.
