Take the Turn to Pharmacist 

A pharmacist is a scientist who turns toward a person in need. A person with questions. Worries. Doubts. To make that turn, you need more than science. Start with biology at North Greenville University. Grow in faith and love and confidence in our small classes and labs. Mentor other students as a lab assistant. Practice. 

Study chemistry and psychology. Physiology and intelligent design. After three years, transfer to Palm Beach Atlantic in West Palm Beach, Florida, for the four-year Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD). The NGU/PBA dual degree equips you to wear the white coat, turning toward the worried face across the counter. 

Experiences Where You Learn Your Profession

On the Job Insight

Get out of the classroom and into the real world. Earn course credit for certain shadowing and internships. These experiences give insight into your future work and prepare you to enter pharmacy school.

Step Up as a Lab Leader

With your clear focus on your future, move quickly from your first lab to helping other students as a teaching assistant. Assist with research and undertake your own. We are by your side at every step.

Step Out in Service

Labs and grades matter. Your heart and spirit matter to us, too. We encourage you to find and grow through volunteering. We help you apply everything to your next step.
