Biology or Biochemistry and Pharmacy (3+4 Program with Northeast Ohio Medical University College of Pharmacy)
In order to allow exceptional life science students the opportunity to accelerate their progress toward earning their terminal degrees, the University of Mount Union has established a 3+4 BS to Doctor of Pharmacy partnership with Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED). This program allows students to complete all requirements for both an undergraduate degree in either biology or biochemistry and a Doctor of Pharmacy in seven years of full-time study. Students complete their first three years of full-time study at the University of Mount Union, immediately followed by four years of study at NEOMED. Students must complete all Integrative Core coursework prior to matriculation. After successful completion of their the 4th year of study, in residence at NEOMED, the student will earn their Bachelor's of Science from the University of Mount Union upon transfer of NEOMED credit back to Mount Union.
Benefits of a 3+4 Program
- Based on the accelerated format, students save a year’s worth of undergraduate tuition and living expenses and get a jump start on entering the workforce.
- Both institutions provide opportunities to network and connect with alumni in the field.
- If the below requirements are met, students will earn direct-entry into a program, saving time and money from applying to multiple pharmacy schools.
