Preparation for Life


This preprofessional program in medicine and health is not a major but rather a course of study that prepare students for graduate school.

Students who know they want to enter a science-related graduate program can take advanced course work in biology, biochemistry, human biology, chemistry and exercise science.

Individualized planning with an advisor tailors a program to fit our students’ interests and needs.
