Students interested in these pre-professional programs are requested to contact the chairperson of the department of Biology or Chemistry. These professional schools do not generally indicate a preference for a particular major. However, they do encourage students to have a liberal arts background with an ability to communicate and a strong concentration in the sciences. Students are advised to take at least one year of biology coursework, two years of chemistry (two semesters of general chemistry and two semesters of organic chemistry), one year of physics (8 credits), and mathematics through calculus as well as college writing and courses in the social or behavioral sciences.
