The BS-Biology degree with a Pre-Pharmacy Concentration at Emmanuel College is designed to allow the student to meet the various admissions requirements of many Doctor of Pharmacy programs while working toward the completion of a bachelor’s degree with a Christian liberal arts core. Most Doctor of Pharmacy programs require the Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT) as part of the application, for which students will need to study and prepare to afford the best chance of entrance into the program of their choice. Because admissions requirements vary greatly between the School of Pharmacy programs, the student will need to carefully review the requirements of the particular Doctor of Pharmacy program(s) of interest to ensure successful completion of that school’s admissions requirements.
