The suggested program of pre-pharmacy study will meet the requirements for the University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy and most other pharmacy schools. To assure proper course selections and to meet all admission requirements, students must work closely with their faculty advisor. The 70 hours of required pre-pharmacy coursework of most colleges of pharmacy can be completed in two years, although it usually takes three years due to the rigorous nature of the coursework. Four additional years are required at pharmacy school. Pre-pharmacy students in the department generally follow the initial curriculum designed with an emphasis in biology and chemistry, however, certain complementary and specific general education courses are recommended. The pre-pharmacy curriculum includes four semesters of biology, two semesters of general chemistry, two semesters of organic chemistry, two semesters of math, one semester of statistics, two semesters of English and one semester of microeconomics. An academic handbook and suggested curriculum are available from the pre-pharmacy advisor.
