A Bachelor of Science in Biology is an excellent way to prepare for medically oriented professional schools. Freshman and transfer students declaring themselves as Pre-Medicine, Pre-Dentistry, Pre-Optometry, Pre-Physical Therapy, Pre-Occupational Therapy, Pre-Physician Assistant, Pre-Veterinary Medicine, or Pre-Pharmacy status should consult the College of Arts and Sciences section of this catalog for information on the Pre-Professional Program. Students in the pre-professional program will receive initial advising through the Pre-Professional Office. In their sophomore year those pursuing a BS Biology degree will be assigned to a Biology Faculty member on the Pre-Professional Committee. Students are encouraged to contact the Pre-professional Advisor, Ms. Lara Jagneaux (Parker 106,firstname.lastname@example.org, (409) 880-8534) for information and assistance.
*Note that a Pre-professional program cannot be declared as a degree major.
