15 Aug HU Launching Pre-Pharmacy Program This Fall
Huntington University will offer an accelerated pre-pharmacy track starting in the fall of 2012 to give students a head start on earning a doctorate degree.
Students will take 2-3 years of pre-pharmacy study at Huntington and then directly enter a four-year pharmacy doctoral program at another institution. In all, students will earn their doctorate degrees in pharmacy up to two years faster, without first having to complete a bachelor’s degree. A Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree is required to practice pharmacy in the United States, and the accelerated route is becoming more common among students.
The university is also launching a new bachelor’s program in pre-athletic training this fall, and is developing a master’s and doctoral-level program in occupational therapy.
