Pre-Pharmacy

Students intending to apply for pharmacy school would be best prepared by completing a Biology B.S. or a Chemistry B.A.   

Concordia University St. Paul's 3+4 partnership with Concordia University Wisconsin allows eligible students to complete their Biology B.S. or Chemistry B.A. and a doctor of pharmacy in seven years.  Students will spend their first three years at Concordia, St. Paul, and the final four years at Concordia, Wisconsin.
