Pre-Pharmacy Curriculum for ULM Students

Students may declare pre-pharmacy as their major or may choose to pursue a toxicology degree on a pre-pharmacy track. If the latter method is chosen, students may apply to pharmacy school in the third year of their toxicology coursework or choose to complete a Bachelor’s degree in toxicology and apply to pharmacy school after that point. Click here for information on the toxicology degree.
