Pre- Pharmacy Programs

Belmont University provides a number of different options for undergraduate students considering a career in the field of Pharmacy. Specific undergraduate majors can be selected leading to a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree, in the disciplines of Biology with a pre-pharmacy emphasis, Chemistry for the Health Sciences pre-pharmacy emphasis, or Pharmaceutical Studies, which allow the students to meet requirements for admission for many pharmacy programs. Students looking at specific Pharm.

Program.  Students do have the option to apply to the Belmont graduate program after completing a minimum of 64 credit hours in the specific curriculum requirements outlined in the graduate catalog.
