Pre-Professional Programs

AMSA337x215.jpegThe College offers several pre-professional programs for students planning careers in law or in one of the primary health care delivery areas: dentistry, medicine, optometry, pharmacy, physical or occupational therapy, physician’s assistant, podiatry, or veterinary medicine. It is important to keep in mind that the pre-professional areas are not academic majors; rather, they are suggested programs of study that prepare students to apply to professional school upon completing their baccalaureate degrees. Since acceptance to professional schools is so competitive, a student should strive for a 3.50 or higher average in order to be considered as a serious applicant for admission. Similarly, and as early as the freshman year in college, pre-professional students should seek to be involved in campus and community activities that further reflect their maturity, dependability, intellectual curiosity, potential for leadership and sound ethical judgment.
