Comprehensive Major in Chemistry-Biopharmaceutical Sciences Concentration


 The biopharmaceutical sciences concentration degree program will prepare Shepherd students for admission into either the School of Pharmacy program at West Virginia University or at Shenandoah University. Those students will receive their bachelor of science degree in chemistry from Shepherd through the transfer of specified first-year pharmacy courses from the WVU School of Pharmacy (SOP) or from the Shenandoah School of Pharmacy (SOP) after successfully completing their first professional year in the pharmacy program.
