Health Science Pre-Professional (BS)

Although our health science program is a nonclinical one, our students often pursue graduate programs in fields such as dentistry, public health, medicine, optometry, chiropractic, pharmacy, podiatry, nursing, occupational therapy, and health-care administration.

The pre-professional track of the health science program prepares you for professional or graduate study in such health-related fields as dentistry, allopathic or osteopathic medicine, optometry, chiropractic, or podiatry. You may pursue the degree on a full- or part-time basis, and you may enter the program as a freshman or a transfer student.

This curriculum includes courses that most professional graduate programs require (a year of general biology and general chemistry, a year of organic chemistry, a year of physics, and one semester of cell biology, microbiology, and biochemistry). Additionally, you will take health science courses that introduce you to a wide range of health-related topics. Examples include Educational Strategies for Healthcare Professionals, The Human Genome, Introduction to Public Health, and Cardiovascular Disease.
