- Undergraduate Pre-Pharmacy Program
Mercer University offers a program especially designed
for students who have expressed an interest in pursuing
a career in pharmacy and who plan to complete all of
their undergraduate pre-pharmacy coursework at the
College of Liberal Arts (CLA) in Macon (as first time freshmen).
Students who have already completed coursework at
another college / university post-high school are
not eligible to participate in this program.
The Mercer Pre-Pharmacy student, upon graduation from high school, will enroll and complete three years and a minimum of 90 semester hours at CLA.
During the third year at CLA, the student will apply to
the Doctor of Pharmacy Program and will be granted an
interview if they meet minimum requirements (published
annually). Upon successful interview, the student will
be accepted and will then enroll in the four-year Pharm.D. curriculum
on the Atlanta Campus. Upon successful completion of the
first professional year in the Pharm.D. Program, the CLA will award the Bachelor of Science in Health Science degree. More information for students interested in the
Pre-Pharmacy Program is
available through CLA's
Academic and Advising Services.
