Pre-Professional Programs

Students interested in preparing for law school, medical school and other professional studies will find special advisors available to assist them in planning their programs.

Those considering law should give particular attention to courses emphasizing analysis of ideas, critical reading and effective communication. Courses in English, economics, psychology, history, philosophy, political science and communication are likely to be especially helpful. Consult the information provided by the Pre-Law Program or email

Those interested in medicine, dentistry, physical therapy, veterinary science, and other allied health fields should consult the SXU website, Pre-Professional Health Care Programs webpage. Not all Pre-Health programs are degree-granting programs.

It is highly recommended that students contact the advisor from the Pre-Health Professions Program, Dr. Tatiana Tatum (Biological Sciences) at
