Pharmacy is a field always in demand, stable, lucrative, and highly rewarding on a personal level. Choosing Pharmacy as a college major will lead to becoming a “Doctor of Pharmacy”. This can be a 6-7 year total track that will lead the student from a freshman to a fully licensed pharmacist. The true key to success is looking for colleges with strong “Pre-Pharmacy” programs.
