Rutgers University-Camden does not offer a pharmacy program.
We offer a "pre-pharmacy track," and Rutgers-Camden pre-pharmacy students are able to apply to transfer to pharmacy schools (such as the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy at Rutgers University-New Brunswick) for the third year and on. However, this is on a competitive basis and there is not a guarantee of acceptance.
Requirements for different pharmacy schools vary, so students are encouraged to research the requirements for every school they eventually wish to apply to.
For the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy in New Brunswick, the requirements include:
50:120:101,102 General Biology I,II
50:120:107 General Biology I Laboratory
50:160:115-116 Chemical Principles I,II
50:160:125-126 Chemical Principles Laboratory I,II
50:350:101-102 English Composition
50:640:121 Unified Calculus
50:960:183 Elementary Applied Statistics.
The second year includes:
50:160:335-336 Organic Chemistry I,II
50:160:339-340 Organic Chemistry Laboratory I,II
50:220:105 Microeconomic Principles
50:750:203-204 General Physics I,II
50:750:133-134 Introductory Physics Laboratory I,II
50:120:348 Human Physiology
6 credits in the humanities or social sciences
This program can be completed only through daytime attendance.
The university's Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy in New Brunswick admits students directly from high school. Students already admitted to the pharmacy school have the option of taking the first two years of academic work in Camden.
