Pre-Medical Concentration

Students can formalize their preparation for medical or professional schools by earning the CLS Pre-Medical concentration. This designation will appear on the transcript. Students are not required to complete the Pre-Medical concentration in order to apply to medical school or other professional school. In recent years, CLS graduates have pursued careers as physicians, physical therapists, physician assistants, pathologists' assistants, and researchers, and they have pursued graduate school (e.g., a Master’s in Public Health).

Pre-med students are advised to take Intro Psychology and Intro Sociology as 2 of the 3 general education social science courses. Students should take MAT 115, Calculus I, as a general education math requirement in addition to a statisics course such as MAT 121. A student who would like to have a Pre-Medical concentration in CLS should consult the CLS Program Director or CLS advisor as some courses in the sciences have recently changed.

The CLS major will need to complete the following courses for the Pre-Medical concentration.
