Professional School Preparation

Pre-professional course requirements prepare students for careers in the health sciences, medicine, dentistry, and pharmacy program, in addition to a variety of educational and vocational alternatives. Students are encouraged to pursue a formal degree program. Choice of a degree-oriented major depends on interest and alternate career plans. It is possible to fulfill professional school requirements and at the same time complete departmental requirements for almost any science major. An applicant must meet all of the pre-professional requirements regardless of undergraduate or graduate degrees held.
