Pre-Professional Interests

Interested in medicine, law or health?

At Missouri State, pre-professional interests — pre-medicine, pre-law, pre-pharmacy — are not majors. You can select any major in preparing for admission to a professional school, provided you complete the courses required by the program(s) to which you plan to apply.

Tips for choosing a major

  • Choose a major that fits your educational and professional interests
  • Tell your advisor about your intent to apply to professional schools
  • Work closely your advisor to ensure you are completing requirements both for your degree program and admission to a professional school
