Pre-Professional Studies

Students majoring in School of the Sciences programs are required to take SCI 100 School of the Sciences New Student Seminar in lieu of Freshman Seminar. Students enrolled in SCI 100 will retain an information booklet which includes specified programs of study for a variety of pre-professional health options, including pre-dentistry, pre-medicine, pre-pharmacy, pre-physical therapy, and pre-veterinary medicine. These options are offered specifically within the following majors: biology, biotechnology, chemistry, and medical technology. With careful planning, it is possible to fulfill pre-professional health program requirements in other majors. The booklet will also introduce students to the wide variety of career and graduate study options open to science and applied mathematics majors.

Students interested in going on to law school after obtaining a bachelor’s degree should see the pre-law option information in the Paralegal Studies section of the catalog.
