Program Highlights

Although professional schools vary in their philosophies and requirements for admission, they all emphasize the importance of a diverse education. In addition to a strong foundation in science and mathematics, Pre-Professional students should develop strong communication skills and a solid background in social sciences, arts, and humanities. In our experience, quality and breadth of the undergraduate experience are more important to future success than developing narrow specialization in science at this stage in your education.

Students in this program are encouraged to gain research experience by collaborating with biology faculty on a research project. The Pre-Professional advising sheets list specific coursework and provide other important advice for students with Pre-Professional interests.
