Premedical Studies Co-Major

The Premedical Studies Co-Major is designed to provide students with a broad-based science background and prepares them to pursue advanced degrees in medicine as well as other healthcare related fields*. The co-major integrates formal advising sessions with professional development courses and courses covering the fundamental concepts in the biological, physical, and social sciences required for admission into medical school and/or covered on the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT). As a result, the co-major requires only 2 additional credit hours to a normal premedical curriculum, while allowing students to more efficiently track their progress toward achieving their professional goals.

As requirements for the co-major overlap extensively with requirements for degrees in Microbiology, the co-major is an attractive academic option for Microbiology majors.  One can complete both with a minimum of additional courses.

Additional information regarding careers in health-related fields is available at the Mallory-Wilson Center for Healthcare Education


*Note: Students are not required to complete the co-major for successful application and admittance to medical school or other health professional schools.
