Majors & Programs of Study


Though SUU does not host a pre-pharmacy major, we offer the support and guidance to ensure students interested in pharmaceutical careers are well-positioned for acceptance into pharmacy school. Our chemistry students have gained admission to top pharmacy schools by completing the required pre-pharmacy pre-requisites while pursuing their undergraduate degree. College of Science academic advisors and pre-pharmacy faculty advisors work closely with our pre-pharmacy students to chart the ideal academic program for their success.


  • Students graduating from our chemistry program enjoy high placement rates in pharmacy school. In fact, in 2009, 100% of our students who applied to pharmacy school were accepted into a graduate program of their choosing.
  • We work closely with the Rural Health Scholars program on our campus, providing resume-building activities to ensure our graduates are competitive in the pharmacy school admissions process.

"I chose SUU because I knew of the outstanding acceptance rate into pharmacy school (and all the health sciences). I knew there had to be something special, and it turns out that the difference is the faculty. Not only do I get small classes, but the professors really care about me. I feel like I have a real friendship with many of my professors. SUU has helped me gain countless experiences through service, leadership and personal interactions that gave me a healthy advantage in the application and interview process."
