Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental

Pre-medical and pre-dental students are not restricted to a specified major but are encouraged to select a major that is most consistent with their interests and that offers as many alternatives for postgraduate study or employment as possible. Students in Arts and Sciences, Business, and Engineering are able to pursue a pre-med program. Students should consult with their deans in selecting appropriate courses.

The suggested sequence of courses: BIO 107, BIO 108, BIO 117, BIO 118; CHEM 105, CHEM 106, CHEM 209, CHEM 210, CHEM 219, CHEM 220; PHYS 123, PHYS 124; MATH 123, MATH 121.

Additional suggested courses would include: sociology, psychology, and biochemistry.

As early as possible, all premedical and pre-dental students should consult the dean of the College of Arts and Sciences who will arrange for proper advising prior to the selection of courses. The recommended course sequence is designed to meet the requirements for entrance into most American medical and dental schools; it is the responsibility of the student to ensure that they take all requirements of a particular program. Students are cautioned, however, that admission to such schools is highly competitive.
