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. 

If you are pursuing your pre-pharmacy courses at ULM, a recommended course sequencing can be found below.  You can choose from a three year option or a two year option.
