Qualified students can pursue one of two paths. An accelerated option, called the “three-year plus four-year” path, allows them to gain early admission to the college and transfer credits from their first year in the Pharm.D. program back to S&T to complete their bachelor’s degree.

The traditional “four-year plus four-year” path allows students to complete their bachelor’s degree at S&T before matriculating to STLCOP. Students in the accelerated path must complete all general education requirements and as many hours toward the biological sciences major as possible before matriculating to STLCOP.

“Approximately two-thirds of our 250 biological sciences majors are interested in continuing their post-baccalaureate education, and half are interested in professional programs in health care,” says David Duvernell, chair and professor of biological sciences at S&T. In a 2018 survey of 143 S&T biological sciences majors, 12 were interested in pursuing a Pharm.D. after graduation, he adds.
