Assistant Professor and Coordinator

Executive Secretary

Students pursuing a Bachelor of Science with a major in health sciences at Oakland University with a pre-pharmacy concentration may pursue admission to any accredited Doctor of Pharmacy program. Students may complete their senior year of coursework at any PharmD program and credits earned from courses at this program will be transferred back to OU to complete the requirements for the Bachelor of Science with a major in health sciences program. It is highly recommended that students consult with the academic adviser prior to enrolling in any of these classes, as completion of coursework does not guarantee admission or completion of the program. Admission into an accredited PharmD program is required to complete this degree. Admission to a PharmD program is through a competitive admissions process. Once accepted, Oakland students will need to 1), send a letter of acceptance to their academic adviser; and 2) register for classes and pay tuition through the PharmD school; 3) send official transcripts after the first year (fall/winter semesters) of the PharmD program to Oakland University.

Students must achieve a minimum of 120 total course credits with a minimum of 32 upper level (3000-4000) course credits and satisfy all University degree requirements to graduate. Completion of this concentration requires at least one year of a professional accredited pharmacy school with no fewer than 20 credits of professional PharmD coursework. Students are required to meet with their assigned academic adviser to discuss the details of the degree requirements.  

May substitute an equivalent number of elective credits

Students not entering a PharmD program may substitute an equivalent number of elective credits. Number of required elective credits required vary based on core courses completed and are selected with assistance from your academic adviser, based on your career goals, from an approved list of courses.


Pre-Pharmacy electives are the same as the Pre-Professions concentrations listed above.
