Pre-Professional and Joint Degree Programs


Essential information for successful health profession admissions.

There is a trend among health profession school admission committees to look more favorably upon non-science majors, providing that their grades in the required science courses are favorably strong. You should consult an adviser in your major department to work out a schedule that enables you to meet the requirements of your chosen major and the premedical requirements.

Students possessing a bachelor’s degree can prepare for health profession school admission by participating in the post-baccalaureate premedical program. Candidates with degrees in non-science disciplines can take the required premedical courses and appropriate ancillary courses and receive counseling and letters of evaluation in support of their professional school applications. Science graduates interested in becoming health professionals may also participate in this program and may benefit by enrolling in the Master of Science program in biology to improve their premedical credentials.
