Your Pharmacy Degree Starts at the Mount
As a future pharmacist, you will be responsible for helping patients manage their medications, checking for potential interactions between prescriptions, and educating them about potential side effects. You will play a critical role in helping patients manage chronic illnesses such as diabetes and asthma. The authority to dispense life-saving medications will be yours after a robust educational journey that begins with your Associate Degree in Pharmacy.
Quality Education at a Low Cost – Just the Rx You Need!
If you want to go to college to become a pharmacist, you can save money by completing your first two years of a bachelor’s degree in pharmacy at Mount Wachusett Community College. Choosing to major in pharmacy at a community college is a wise way to start your career. Our A.S. Pharmacy aligns with typical bachelor programs that you would find at a larger college or university — but at a fraction of the cost.
Prepare to Become a Pharmacist
MWCC’s Pharmacy program is part of the MassTransfer curriculum, which means your credits will easily transfer within the Massachusetts Higher Education system. It is designed to help you transfer to college or university pharmacy programs where you can then earn your Bachelor’s in Pharmacy and ultimately your Doctor of Pharmacy degrees.*
*Please note that this is not a Pharmacy Technician degree. The Mount’s A.S. Pharmacy degree is intended to prepare the student to transfer to a four-year college or university where they will earn a bachelor’s degree in pharmacy.
