USI's Biochemistry, Biology, and Chemistry majors offer excellent preparation for Pharmacy studies.
Pharmacy is an exciting career with a wide variety of opportunities from retail to research to hospital settings. Pre-Pharmacy students need a strong foundation in science and math and often seek a Bachelor's degree in biology, chemistry, or biochemistry.
