Pharmacy Affiliative Degree Program with the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM)
Seton Hill's degree program with the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM) gives Seton Hill pre-pharmacy students the benefit of having a seat reserved in pharmacy school while completing undergraduate study in biology. Incoming Seton Hill freshmen, if accepted into the program, can move seamlessly into pharmacy school after three or four years of study at Seton Hill. Options for pharmacy school include earning the Pharm.D. online, or through on-campus study at LECOM’s Schools of Pharmacy in Pennsylvania or Florida. Students successfully completing both phases of the cooperative degree program receive a Bachelor of Science degree from Seton Hill and a Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the School of Pharmacy at LECOM.
