Do you want to take a holistic approach to healing and community health?

A wide variety of medical professions, including dental, medical, nurse practitioner, pharmacy, physician’s assistant, veterinary, and more all require a similar core education. Students interested in these opportunities are advised to pursue the Bachelor of Science degree. 

Who is this for?

While students interested in this track will complete a degree heavy with coursework in biology, they must also develop a broad understanding of chemistry, mathematics, physics, psychology, and sociology in order to be most successful, in addition to more specialized areas particular to each future profession. Please contact our pre-medical and pre-health advisors for further information.
