See how students and faculty are making a difference by studying biology at SLU.
Learn, Collaborate and Experiment
Set to open in summer 2020, Saint Louis University's new ISE building will be a showcase facility where undergraduate and graduate science and engineering students and faculty gather to learn, collaborate and experiment. It will feature innovative teaching environments and flexible lab spaces.
Biology, B.S. to Pharmacy, Pharm.D. Accelerated Program
Obtain an undergraduate degree at Saint Louis University and then a Pharm.D. at University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy in St. Louis in seven rather than eight years through this accelerated Doctor of Pharmacy program.
Students working toward a Bachelor of Science in biology at SLU can apply for admission at University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy (UHSP) in St. Louis after three years of undergraduate study. Courses taken as part of the first professional (P1) year of study at UHSP in St. Louis will also satisfy senior-level degree requirements for the bachelor's degree.
The B.S. degree in biology at SLU will satisfy all pre-requisites for admission to the Pharm.D. program at UHSP
Sixteen credits from the first year of the Pharm.D. will be used to meet the remaining B.S. in biology degree requirements.
For additional information see the catalog entries for the following programs:
Students may apply to the accelerated B.S. to Pharm.D. program after having completed 15 credits at SLU and prior to achieving 45 total credits. Students must have a minimum of a 2.70 cumulative grade point average (GPA) to apply. Transfer students will be considered on a case by case basis and must meet eligibility requirements.
The following first professional (P1) year courses of the Pharm.D. at University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy in St. Louis will satisfy the bachelor degree requirements outlined.
BIOL 4360: Principles of Immunology (2 credits) will satisfy an upper-division biology elective
BIOL 4432: Medical Physiology (3 credits) will satisfy an upper-division biology elective
BIOL 4350: Molecular Biology/Genetics Lab (3 credits) will satisfy an upper-division biology elective
BIOL 4401: Principals of Drug Action (4 credits) will satisfy an upper-division biology elective and Senior Inquiry elective
PHAR 4102 Introduction to Patient Care (4 credits) will satisfy an upper-division biology elective
Roadmaps are recommended semester-by-semester plans of study for programs and assume full-time enrollment unless otherwise noted.
Courses and milestones designated as critical (marked with !) must be completed in the semester listed to ensure a timely graduation. Transfer credit may change the roadmap.
This roadmap should not be used in the place of regular academic advising appointments. All students are encouraged to meet with their advisor/mentor each semester. Requirements, course availability and sequencing are subject to change.
