Program Description

The practice of pharmacy requires detailed knowledge of the physical and chemical properties of drugs as well as their particular biologic effects.

Pharmacists may provide patient care, teach at colleges and universities, or may perform pharmaceutical research.  The coursework generally requires a minimum of two full-time academic years of study. Most students require at least three years to complete prerequisite course work.
