Pre-Pharmacy


Pre-Professional Studies are designed for students planning to pursue further study at a professional school. Students are encouraged to meet with an advisor as soon as possible to discuss course selection, to gather information regarding admission requirements for professional schools, and to select an appropriate undergraduate major. Please note that Pre-Professional Studies are NOT majors, an EMU degree will not be awarded.


Two years of college work (60 transferable hours, including the courses listed below) are required for admission to a professional school of pharmacy. Some schools have additional required or recommended courses.

Programs in pharmacy require two to four additional years of study after acceptance into the program. Clinical experience is required for some, especially doctoral programs. These are minimal requirements. To be competitive for some pharmacy programs, students may need to complete a bachelors program. It is strongly advised that students contact pharmacy schools directly to determine whether additional coursework and PCAT exam scores are required.
