As a profession, pharmacy exists to serve the needs of society, most often represented as the needs of individual patients. Pharmacists are the health professionals who serve patients and other health professionals in assuring appropriate use of, and optimal therapeutic outcomes from, medications. The Pre-Pharmacy programme is offered at the University of Southern California.


Some pharmacy schools will accept students upon the completion of a minimum of 60 semester units of pre-pharmacy coursework. However, due to a high number of applications, a bachelor’s degree is highly preferred at many institutions. 

Key facts:

  • The Pre-Pharmacy programme is offered at the University of Southern California
  • A Pharm.D. (Doctor of Pharmacy) degree requires at least four years of professional study. The first two years usually cover the basic sciences and the last two years, pharmacy theory and practice.

  • These residency programs may be in pharmacy practice or specialty areas, depending upon personal interests and specific career requirements.
