Program Information

Welcome to the pre-health program. If you are excited about a career where you can help people or animals — and pursue your passion for science — you have come to the right place. Not sure how or where to start? A liberal arts education is geared to allow you to explore your interests without confining you to a narrowly-focused academic track, so that when you leave campus, you know you are headed in the direction that is right for you. We know that plotting your trajectory is complicated: the process requires regular self-assessment, reflection, and thoughtfully connecting your academic coursework with your training and experience outside the classroom. We are here to help.

Here you will find resources for:

  • Planning your coursework and seeking academic support services when necessary
  • Gaining practical experience to help you clarify your goals and prepare for the professional program you choose
  • Support for the application process, from selecting schools to practice interviews
