Bachelor of Science
If you are interested in pursuing a career in pharmacy or pharmaceuticals, consider the Biochemistry-Pharmacy Track degree. This program works for students who excel in math and science and who like to work with their hands.
Students who want to attend medical school, obtain a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree, or pursue an accelerated nursing program will find the pre-requisites necessary to start you on your path. This program’s design specifically covers the needs of most regional pharmacy post-graduate schools. Based on the coursework design, it can also cover pre-requisites for most pre-medicine (pre-med) and pre-health fields.
Combining the Pharmacy Track with KU’s Biochemistry program gives students who are interested in that side of the science – exploring chemical processes within biological systems – a different angle in the pharmacy field.
At KU, you’ll benefit from direct faculty-student collaborative research opportunities. Your curriculum will include biochemistry courses with the option to focus your electives on chemistry or biology. You’ll spend much of your class time in the Boehm Science Center research laboratories gaining firsthand experience and working one-on-one with professors who are outstanding teachers, published researchers and caring mentors. This state-of-the-art facility provides a modern space for our teaching and research laboratories, and a variety of modern chemical instrumentation.
Upon graduation, you can pursue graduate study, or enter the workforce. Graduates may pursue fields such as pharmaceutical, analytical contract, food and drug testing companies.
Students selecting a Bachelor of Science are administered through the Biochemistry Program and KU's Department of Physical Sciences, within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
