Chemistry and Pre-Pharmacy


If you’re interested in pursuing a career in pharmacy, Eastern Nazarene’s Chemistry and Pre-Pharmacy Dual Degree Program can help you reach your goals.

We offer a sequence where you can earn your Bachelor of Science in Chemistry that leads to a Doctor of Pharmacy degree (PharmD) upon transfer to Pharmacy School. In this program, you will spend their first three years of study earning your Bachelor’s of Science in Chemistry at Eastern Nazarene. You will then enter into your first year of study with the PharmD program. This dual degree program typically requires one more year to complete than a regular six-year pharmacy degree, however, the dual degree offers a greater flexibility in career options.
