Biology - Pre-Pharmacy School Information Page

Students planning a career in pharmacy may follow a prepharmacy curriculum at WKU for two years, then transfer to a school of pharmacy for the remaining four years of training. The following curriculum contains courses required for admission to the University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy. The courses required by other schools of pharmacy are much the same; however, the student should
investigate the requirements of the school to which that student plans to transfer in order that every requirement may be included in the pre-pharmacy program.

Freshman year: BIOL 120, 121, 131; CHEM 120, 121, 222, 223; ENG 100; MATH 136; electives.
Sophomore year: BIOL 207, 208; CHEM 340, 341, 342, 343; ECON 202; ENG 300; PHYS 231, 232, 332, 233; MATH
183; electives.
Electives should include one course in either geography, psychology or sociology. COMM 145, HIST 119 or 120 is
also recommended.

The Carpenter-Dent Trust Fund offers scholarships to eligible pre-pharmacy students who are residents of Allen,
Simpson or Warren County.
