Exceptional Preparation for Pharmacy Careers
Eastern's pre-pharmacy major in Biochemical Studies includes all the courses necessary to prepare for a graduate degree in pharmacy at the vast majority of pharmacy schools throughout the country. Eastern students can benefit from our partnership with Temple University that guarantees qualified students entrance into the Temple University School of Pharmacy (TUSP) for their distinguished Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program. TUSP is one of the oldest pharmacy schools in the country, and offers a customized doctor of pharmacy degree through elective tracks in areas such as clinical trials and drug safety.
While some colleges have developed complicated 3+4 articulation agreements that depend on graduate coursework for undergraduate degree completion, Eastern’s FastPass program allows students to complete the pre-pharmacy degree program in a little as 3 years already. This also means that students are not locked into pharmacy if they change their career goals; they can still pursue advanced degrees in other areas such as pharmaceuticals and public health, or find technical jobs in healthcare and the chemical industry.
