Pre-Medical Program

Choosing a Major

Medical schools highly recommend you obtain a four-year undergraduate baccalaureate degree. There is no 'pre-med' degree or major, so in addition to your pre-med requirements you must complete a specific major. The different majors are listed in the college catalog. You should select a major in an area that is interesting to you and that you would be willing to use as a backup career should you not be accepted into medical school.

In general, science majors should broaden out in non-science areas, and non-science majors should add some additional science courses beyond the minimum science requirement.
