Chemistry: Pharmaceutical Sciences 3+1 Concentration (6312) - Chemistry and Physics, B.S.

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs (A-Z)

This concentration is restricted to students pursuing a 3+1 program in pharmacy at an approved college of pharmacy with which UT Martin maintains an articulation agreement. Please consult with an advisor or the pre-health science coordinator for a current list of participating pharmacy programs.

Students who have been accepted for early admission into an approved doctoral program in pharmacy are eligible to pursue the Health Sciences concentration. The 3+1 program is a degree path designed to combine three years of undergraduate course work-including all general education requirements, required course work for the major (detailed below), and pharmacy school prerequisites-with one year of pharmacy school.

The following are required for the Health Sciences Concentration:


Required Courses

Pharmacy School Requirement (30 hours)

To fulfill the pharmacy school requirement, a student will:    

  • Submit a letter to the Pre-Professional Coordinator upon acceptance into an approved pharmacy school doctoral program stating his or her intent to complete the Health Sciences concentration.
  • Satisfactorily complete a minimum of 30 hours of pharmacy course work in the first year of pharmacy school with a minimum grade of C.
  • Request a transcript of the completed pharmacy course work to be sent to the Office of the Registrar. Course work will be reviewed and applied to the student’s record thereafter.

Note: Students who wish to complete a traditional four-year B.S. degree prior to entering pharmacy school should pursue a Chemical Sciences concentration (see above). Students in the Health Sciences concentration must meet all eligibility and residency requirements in their catalog of record. Participation in the 3+1 program does not ensure admission to pharmacy school. Student who do not gain admission to pharmacy school after three years still have the option to complete a major in four years by completing the required courses for the Chemical Sciences concentration (with a suggested minor in Biology)

Courses to complete the Chemistry Major (11 hours):

Courses to complete the Biology Minor (5 hours):

  • Five additional hours of upper-division Biology, Botany, Microbiology, or Zoology
