The Pre-professional program is designed to prepare students for admission into health care programs requiring an extensive background in science. Examples of these programs include pre-medicine, pre-dental, pre-veterinary medicine, pre-pharmacy, pre-physical therapy, pre-occupational therapy, pre-chiropractic, and pre-optometry.
The core requirements include science courses generally common to all professional schools, including general chemistry, general physics, mathematics, and extensive biology. Students spend the first semester researching the particular requirements for program of study at various schools, and develop a four-year plan. Your science curriculum will be supplemented and complemented by a variety of courses in other areas, such as psychology, sociology, communication, human relations and diversity, ethics, and government.
Pre-professional stduents will develop broadly based problem-solving skills, strong critical-thinking skills and the ability to communicate effectively. Working in small groups, students will conduct and analyze scientific research. The major's broad science background, combined with general education core, will give graduates the breadth and variety of courses schools are requiring of their entering graduate students. You should be prepared to apply to the program of your choice when you complete this program.
