Food Science and Technology Major, BS in Food Science – Pre-Pharmacy and Pre-Pharmacy 3+1 Concentrations

Food Science and Technology Major, BS in Food Science – Pre-Pharmacy and Pre-Pharmacy 3+1 Concentrations

The programs in pre-pharmacy allow students to be awarded a Bachelor of Science in Food Science with a major in food science and technology after three years and the successful completion of the first year (two semesters) in the UT-Memphis pharmacy programs. The last 30 hours of the three-year curriculum must be taken at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. A total of 120 hours must be completed by the end of the first year in professional school. No later than December 31 of the student’s first year in professional school (s)he should contact the Department of Food Science and Technology to check on graduation procedures for this program.

Although a Bachelor of Science degree is not required for admission to the professional school, most of the students accepted into these programs have the baccalaureate degree before admission. Therefore, students are encouraged to plan to complete all requirements for Bachelor of Science degree before enrolling in either of these colleges. A Bachelor of Science degree can be obtained before enrolling in the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program.
