2003-2005 Academic Catalog
Pharmacy is included among those fields of a professional nature in which preparatory work can be taken at a four-year liberal arts college. Application for admission to a school of pharmacy may be made either as a transfer student, or after having earned a degree from St. Catherine's. In either case, a student must complete a series of specific prerequisite courses to be eligible for admission. While prerequisite requirements vary in detail, all emphasize course work in the natural sciences. However, because pharmacy schools do not require a specific academic major for admission, a student may complete these prerequisite courses as part of an undergraduate program which includes any major of their choosing.

BIOL 121 General Biology
