Program in Chemistry (Prepharmacy)

The Chemistry (Prepharmacy) program is designed to prepare students for success in pharmacy school.  Students wishing to pursue a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree through Xavier's College of Pharmacy must complete 61 credit hours of the Chemistry (Prepharmacy) curriculum, as specified, prior to being admitted to the PharmD program.  Students interested in pursuing a Doctor of Pharmacy degree at another institution are also advised to follow the Chemistry (Prepharmacy) curriculum while at Xavier.  For those students following this course of study who may opt not to pursue an advanced degree in pharmacy, the four-year curriculum provides preparation for other careers or advanced study requiring significant background in chemistry.  Students choosing to complete the full four-year program should work closely with their academic advisor in choosing elective courses.
