Requirements for pharmacy schools vary a great deal.
All require a minimum of 1.5 years of Biology, two years of Chemistry and a year of Physics. Most also require Economics and Psychology classes. Some require specific communications classes (usually something beyond COMM 101) and English beyond ENGL 110.
Typical science requirements for pharmacy school are listed below, with the recommend equivalents at Monmouth. We encourage students to consider their specific list of graduate programs of interest so they can work with advisers to create a plan tailored to their plans. The Pharmacy College Application Service (PharmCAS) information pages detail requirements of individual schools.
In addition to coursework, most pharmacy schools also require the Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT).
