Pre-Health Major

The College of Health and Human Services Pre-Health Program provides support to students exploring careers in the health and human services professions with academic advising and career exploration. The Pre-Health Program allows students interested in: Communicative Sciences - Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology options, Health Science-Community Health, Kinesiology-Exercise Science, Nursing, and Social Work to explore these majors and career pathways.

The Pre-Health Program is a three semester program that will blend in all lower division general education. Students in the Pre-Health Program can enroll in HHS 18A - Career Pathways in Health and Human Services  in their first semester and HHS 18B - Career Exploration and Collaboration in Health and Human Services  in their second semester to help in the exploration process. During the second semester an academic counselor will work with students’ to identify a major appropriate to their career path and then in the beginning of their third semester they will apply to the major of their interest. Though HHS 18A  and HHS 18B  are strongly encouraged, they are not required to complete the Pre-Health major.
