Introduction to Pharmacy

Study pharmacy and you’ll do more than educate patients on their prescriptions. You’ll be a trusted member of the community guiding each and every person who walks through those pharmacy doors.

From helping babies with reflux, teens with acne and the elderly with joint pain. At every stage of life, you’ll be there.

Study a pharmacy degree or pharmacy courses online and you’ll be entering a profession that combines empathy with science from behind the counter. There’s nothing quite like it.
