Pre-health Minor

The pre-health minor is intended for non life science majors that are interested in a medical health profession (medicine, dental, chiropractic, pharmacy, veterinary, optometry), an allied health profession (dental hygiene, medical imaging & radiation sciences, occupational or physical therapy, physician assistant/associate) or nursing. The pre-health minor consists of 18 hours, of which, 12 hours must be upper division; choose from the list below depending on your health profession interest. The minor must contain at least two different prefix codes (BIOL, CHEM, MATH, PHYS, PSYC, SCI). Please note: there may be additional prerequisites beyond the 18 hours in the minor required for your specific health profession. Please consult the pre-health advisor.

The pre-health minor is not an option for life science majors, Biology (any option) or Chemistry (any option).
