Preprofessional advisors are available to assist students who have a declared educational goal in a preprofessional field such as pre-medicine, pre-law, and pre-pharmacy, to name a few. Preprofessional educational goals are not majors in LAS. Students who have an educational goal must also have a declared major to be eligible to graduate from LAS.
Prior to applying for admission to a professional program, many programs require specific coursework to be completed. Preprofessional advisors are available to assist students in carefully selecting coursework to fulfill educational goal requirements. They also provide guidance to students through workshops that aid students in brainstorming how their current and future experiences can help them achieve their goals, preparing for the application process, crafting a personal statement, and navigating the letter of recommendation process. Students with educational goals should continue to work with LAS and departmental advisors as they progress through their requirements toward graduation.
