Is pre-med/vet/dental/engineering/law/physical therapy/etc. a major?

February 21, 2018

No.  While we have pre-professional programs, they are to be adopted in conjunction with a major, not in place of it.  The pre-professional programs are a list of courses that prepare you for progression into these fields.  You can be in any pre-professional program with any major, but talk to your advisor to make sure you will meet all of your requirements..  For some of the pre-professional programs, you may be required to transfer to a different university to complete your studies.
