What is an associate degree in pharmacy? A pharmacy program prepares students to work as a pharmacist in the health care industry. This is an extremely competitive field of study, and students will typically have to take challenging courses in chemistry, pharmacology, and biology in order to graduate. Students will generally learn how certain medications and substances impact the human mind and body. After completing this field of study, students may be able to fill and dispense medicines prescribed by a physician.

There are many benefits to earning a pharmacy degree. This is a very lucrative field, and pharmacists earn some of the highest salaries on the books. Students may also find that they have a greater amount of career choices than workers who do not have a degree.

The cost of earning this degree varies from place to place. In addition to your geographic location, institutional rates and program duration also influence costs. Students should contact their school of choice for more comprehensive financial information.

Pharmacy students will encounter a wealth of career options after graduation. The majority of students will work as pharmacists in retail settings. These pharmacists dispense prescriptions and are responsible for educating consumers about various medicines. Others may work in hospitals and clinics, assisting other health care professionals in caring for patients. A small minority choose to work for pharmaceutical companies in executive and quality control positions.

If you are thinking about earning this degree, you may be able to do so online. Online programs allow you to complete courses at your own speed.
