The pharmacy program is another dual degree option, arranged between Fisk and Howard University. This program permits students to complete a B.S. in biology at Fisk and a professional degree in pharmacy at Howard.
Students who participate in the program are expected to complete the core curriculum and prescribed major courses, as well as pharmacy prerequisite courses, during a three-year period at Fisk. The student then transfers to the College of Pharmacy at Howard University.
Successful completion of the three-year program at Fisk and the first year of courses in the College of Pharmacy at Howard will satisfy requirements for the Bachelor of Science degree from Fisk. Requirements for the professional degree in pharmacy at Howard, with the Doctor of Pharmacy option, should be completed during three or more additional years at that institution. Students who participate in this program are regular, full-time Fisk students for all administrative, academic, financial, and other purposes during the first three years of the program. Thereafter, they are regular, full-time students at Howard University.
Requirements for the B.S. in biology in the pharmacy dual degree program are similar to those that apply for B.A. candidates in biology at Fisk.
