You can intern or get a pharm tech job at many pharmacies in town and gain the preferred experience to be competitive for early admission to pharmacy school, even before earning your bachelor's degree. Most of our pre-pharmacy students work as pharm techs while at Transy.
Our partnership program with the University of Kentucky lets you graduate from Transylvania in three years with a liberal studies degree, then enter the University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy—one of the top pharmacy schools in the region.
To complete the program, you will complete Transylvania’s general education requirements and required pre-pharmacy courses, take at least 27 units of course work in residence and transfer the equivalent of 9 units of credit from the approved courses at the University of Kentucky as elective credits. Because the pre-pharmacy program requires careful planning, students should consult early with chemistry professor Eva Csuhai and continue to work closely with her.
Students must meet the University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy admission requirements.
