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. 

What Can I Do with a Dual Degree in Biology and Pharmacy?

A dual degree in biology and pharmacy opens doors to diverse career paths in healthcare. You can become a pharmacist, working in drug dispensing and patient care. Alternatively, you may pursue research roles in pharmaceutical companies, focusing on drug development and testing.

This combination also positions you well for regulatory affairs or healthcare management roles. Your dual degree provides a strong foundation for a versatile and rewarding career in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries.
