Beloit has partnered with the
Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) to provide students a unique dual-degree program. Students can graduate with a B.S./B.A. from Beloit and a Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) from MCW in as few as six years.
For the 3+3 program, take the courses required for a B.S. in
Biochemistry while still having plenty of choices to pursue non-major electives. For the 4+3 program, take the pharmacy prerequisite courses and earn a B.A. or B.S. in the major of your choice.
