Note: Pre-PharmD students may wish to include in their preparatory course work, as time/space allows, some of the non-professional curriculum graduation requirements: 2 credits of any kind of history and 3 credits of humanities electives. These graduation requirements may be completed before or after starting the PharmD program. They must be completed before completion of the PharmD program.
