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 complete three years of study at Transylvania, then enter the University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy—one of the top pharmacy schools in the region.
In your three years at Transylvania, you will complete the general education requirements and required UK pre-pharmacy courses, take at least 27 units of course work in residence at Transylvania. You will transfer the equivalent of 9 units of credit from the approved courses at UK back to Transylvania as elective credits to complete your bachelor of arts degree in liberal studies. 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.
