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.
POINTS of DISTINCTION
- 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.
