Pharmacists have a vast number of career opportunities including community and hospital pharmacies, manufacturing industry, medical representatives, sales people and researchers.

Consult a counselor or academic adviser for recommended courses specific to student's choice of transfer institution.

Course of Study

  1. Complete Associate in Biology DTA/MRP degree requirements, or consult a college counselor/adviser for AA degree requirements.
  2. Carefully check the foreign language requirements of the college to which you plan to transfer. If possible, complete these requirements while enrolled at the community college.
  3. Completion of recommended courses in a pre-major for transfer does not necessarily assure a student admission to a four-year institution or a specific program.
College Transfer Information
While students attend college for a variety of reasons, most attend for the purpose of acquiring the knowledge and skills needed for entering a particular field of work, occupation or profession. Because the first two years of college are frequently spent meeting general college or university requirements, many options are available to students who plan to complete their freshman and sophomore years at SCC or SFCC.
Students should always check the requirements of the four-year institution from which they intend to graduate. Careful planning is necessary, as transferability of specific courses or programs is determined solely by the college to which the student transfers. Transfer guides, available in counseling centers at SCC and SFCC, should be consulted by all students planning to transfer. 
Students who have not made a decision regarding a transfer institution should follow the Community Colleges of Spokane requirements for the associate of arts degree. These requirements will satisfy most of the general course requirements for graduation from other institutions. Requirements for the associate of arts degree and a complete listing of courses available will be found in the college catalog.
Counseling Services
Educational, vocational and personal counseling services are available to all students through the counseling centers at SCC or SFCC. Students may obtain professional counseling services prior to registration to plan their program of study. In addition, faculty advisers are assigned to each student to provide further assistance during the year.
