Pre-Professional Programs


Union’s pre-professional programs are designed for students who want to obtain a bachelor’s degree and then enter a professional school – most often to pursue medical, dental, pharmacy, veterinary or law careers. Our pre-professional programs are not traditional academic majors, but professional tracks developed around a core program and associated curriculum.

Students entering the pre-professional programs will be assisted in choosing an academic major most suited to their selected profession. Union’s advisors will then help the student select courses, extracurricular activities and academic interests to increase chances of being admitted to the professional program of your choice.
