Preparing for a career in the health sciences
Through our 0-6 Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program model, qualifying high school seniors applying to the Pharmacy program are guaranteed a seat in our four-year PharmD program, provided they meet academic milestones during their first two years of preprofessional studies.
• In our 19 labs in the Center for Sciences and Pharmacy, we offer six science majors (Biology, Chemistry, Forensic Biology, Forensic Chemistry, Health Sciences, and Health Studies) and three pre-professional health programs, including Pre-physician Assistant, Pre-optometry, and Pharmacy.
• The Health Science major provides foundational science prerequisites for our students to move on to various medical schools and programs. 
• Our Health Studies major prepares students to obtain more advanced training in health-related fields that focus on the social, psychological, and public health perspectives. A concentration is also offered in Pre-occupational Therapy for students who intend to pursue a Doctor of Occupational Therapy degree, which they may do at Western New England University.
