Bachelor of Science in Biology, Chemistry or Biological Chemistry (Pre-Pharmacy Track)
Pharmacists are healthcare professionals who can legally distribute prescription drugs to individuals. Their responsibilities include advising doctors and patients about the dosages and side effects of medications and monitoring patients to make sure that medications are taken properly and safely. Our Pre-Pharmacy program is designed to help students succeed in gaining acceptance to pharmacy school.
The Evangel University Department of Science and Technology is dedicated to the spiritual, academic and social growth of every student. The department’s purpose is to provide an excellent scientific education that is thoroughly integrated with the University’s emphasis on the development of strong Christian character. Within this framework, students must contend with new scientific, social, ethical and technological challenges. Students learn to communicate technical concepts clearly and effectively and exhibit analytical thinking and problem-solving skills.
Our pre-pharmacy curriculum is tailored to provide the knowledge that students need for the Pharmacy College Admissions Test (PCAT) and pharmacy school. Pre-pharmacy students typically choose a major in biology, biological chemistry or chemistry. The rigors demanded by courses in biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics challenge the students to successfully prepare for their future careers. This curriculum integrates research at several levels, culminating in a mentored research project either on or off-campus.
Each of Evangel's academic programs is made up of a set of core curriculum, program requirements and electives. The courses listed below are just a small sample of courses that might be taken as a part of this specific program.
