Pre-Pharmacy

phramMercer University undergraduates who plan to pursue a career in pharmacy are considered to the on the "pre-pharmacy" track.  Pre-pharmacy is not an academic major, but a preparatory track, so pre-pharmacy students will declare and work towards an academic major and minor>> as they fulfill the admission requirements for their preferred pharmacy school(s).

High-achieving, first-time college students interested in earning a bachelor's degree and accelerating their preparation for pharmacy school may seek participation in one of the Accelerated Special Consideration Programs (ASCP) described in detail on the Special Consideration Programs web page>>.

Students should note that the prerequisite for all introductory science courses offered by the College of Liberal Arts (chemistry, biology, and physics) is "calculus-readiness" (competency in mathematics at or above the pre-calculus level). Students planning on following a pre-health professions track are therefore advised to take mathematics in high school at least through the pre-calculus level.
