Are you considering a career in Pharmacy? At Hesston College, you will receive the personal attention and solid academic preparation that will take you where you want to go.

How will Hesston College prepare me for future studies?

Hesston College offers an associate of science degree, a degree program that ensures ease of transfer into the four-year college or university pharmacy program of your choice. The associate of science degree is especially designed to fulfill the primary sequence of courses required for subsequent upper-level biology courses.

In addition, you will complete a range of liberal arts courses, course work that provides a broadly based educational foundation. The liberal arts courses are similar to and meet most introductory general education courses at four-year institutions. After two years, you will have completed at least 60 college credit hours to earn the associate of science degree.

What courses will I take?

As a pre-pharmacy major, you can choose courses from the following offerings: Introduction to Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Environmental Science, Botany, Zoology, Anatomy and Physiology, and Microbiology.

But that’s not all. As a Hesston College pre-pharmacy major, you have opportunities to serve as a tutor and department assistant, privileges normally reserved for upperclassmen at most schools.


The small class size found at Hesston College allows for great one-to-one attention that is needed to excel in a science field, such as pharmacy. The instructors are at the top of their field not only in their own personal knowledge but also in the way they are able to communicate it with their students. The two years I spent at Hesston provided the science background I needed to further my studies in pharmacy.          -Justin Koehn, ’01
