About the Program
Welcome to the pre-pharmacy program, where you may enjoy all the benefits of a liberal arts experience while fulfilling the prerequisites for entrance into University of Maryland’s pharmacy school.
This dual-degree program requires a minimum of seven years of study. The first three are spent here, where students typically major in biology, chemistry, or psychology with a concentration in behavioral neuroscience.
Through this program, you earn a bachelor of science degree from Washington College and a doctor of pharmacy degree from the University of Maryland. In recent years, Maryland’s School of Pharmacy has increased enrollment to ease a pharmacist shortage.
