College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences



Butler’s unique, highly-selective, two-year, Pre-Pharmacy program invests highly in its students, ensuring you will take classes from—and be advised by—pharmacy faculty starting on day one. At the end of the two year, pre-professional stage, you will have a direct pathway into the prestigious Doctor of Pharmacy program, as long as you maintain satisfactory academic progress and complete the Professional Phase admission process. This direct pathway means you’re not competing with your other classmates for a select number of spots in the PharmD program; rather, you’re competing only with yourself to ensure all the admission criteria are met.

Sample courses in this program include:

  • BI105, Intro to Cell Biology
  • CH105, General Chemistry
  • CH351, Organic Chemistry
  • MA106, Calculus and Analytical Geometry
  • PX100, Exploring Pharmacy
  • PX326, Human Anatomy & Physiology
