Biochemistry- Pre-Pharmacy (B.S.)

Student Learning Outcomes

  1. Students will demonstrate knowledge of discipline- specific content related to macro- principles describing the 3 domains of biology and the molecular nature of life.
  2. Students will use critical thinking by demonstrating the ability to recognize the components of a problem, formulate a strategy to solve the problem, apply comprehensive scientific knowledge to execute a solution and then evaluate the effectiveness of the solution.
  3. Students will demonstrate communication skills reflective of professional standards consistent biology-related associations (i.e. FASEB).
  4. Students will demonstrate discipline- specific core laboratory and calculation- based skills related to the characterization and classification of life forms, their components and habitats and in the molecular analysis of living species.
  5. Students will demonstrate readiness for post-baccalaureate entry into a workforce or acceptance into graduate or professional programs in Biology and/or health professions.
  6. Students will demonstrate global perspective in their understanding of how biological factors affect economics, health, technology and the environment.

Math and Science requirements in major also fulfill core requirements; MATH 155 and MATH 156 are prerequisites for MATH 210A. 

The first 3 years at Walsh will include the first page of this curriculum sheet as well as the majority of the general education curriculum. It may require some summer courses to complete this major in the 3 + 2 window. Check with your advisor for details.

At the end of the spring semester in year 3, students will begin graduate courses at NEOMED working towards their Doctorate of Pharmacy. At the end of year 4, the BS in Biology from Walsh will have been earned andyou will graduate from Walsh.
