Pre-Pharmacy Concentration

The Pre-Pharmacy Concentration prepares students to take the Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT), and meet the admissions requirements for pharmacy school. The concentration may be added to any major, but usually is coupled with the Biology Major or the Chemistry Major. This curriculum is based upon the requirements for the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. Other schools may have additional requirements. Lyon College proficiency and common core courses (ENG 101 & 102, MTH 101, etc.) are not included here even though many schools list them as prerequisites. Some of these courses may have prerequisites not shown. Only one pre-health professions concentration may be declared.
