Course Planning: Prerequisites for Pharmacy School...

  • There are no set prerequisites for pharmacy school.
    • Instead, each school has its own list of required coursework for admission.
    • That means that, early on, you must compile a list of the schools you plan to apply to so you can plan your coursework accordingly.
  • A great resource is the "Pharmacy School Admissions Requirements", an exhaustive list of accredited pharmacy schools in the United States.
  • Note that some common prerequisites, like public speaking, are not offered at St. Mary's. Think ahead and plan accordingly.
  • Also note that many schools require specific courses outside of the sciences, such as economics, statistics, and english composition.
