Pre-Professional Curricula

Pre-professional degree programs are designed to prepare students for entry into a bachelor degree program and then into their identified area of professional schooling. It is necessary for pre-professional students to work closely with an academic advisor to ensure that the requirements of the identified professional school(s) are met. For each pre-professional student, the degree program will be modified to provide the student with coursework that will best prepare them for their future studies and professional practice. Students expecting to qualify for admission into professional schools are urged to study carefully the particular requirements of the institution from which they wish to obtain a degree. Since society imposes leadership responsibilities on professionally trained people, most professional schools recommend that pre-professional training should stress 1) proficiency in language, 2) broad cultural background in the liberal arts or humanistic studies and in the social and behavioral sciences, and 3) completion of some basic science course and familiarity with the use of the scientific laboratory method.

This is a transfer degree program.
