<p>Hello, </p>

<p>I really want to learn about pharmacy, and perhaps pursue a job in that area. However, I don't know how the whole pre-med ordeal works. If I go to UCSD with a Chemistry major, would it help me at all? Or do you suggest changing to a more traditional major? Thanks so much!</p>

<p>two things.</p>

<li>pharmacy is NOT pre-med. med = medicine. </li>
<li>pharmacy and pharmacology involve the study and dispensing of drugs, synthetic and natural-substance-based molecules designed to interact with your body's specific biochemical properties. if you don't think a chemistry major is "traditional" enough preparation, then what is?</li>
