College of Science Pre-Health Pathways

EKU has a number of programs that will help prepare students for professional schools following graduation.  These schools generally do not require a specific major, provided that their prerequisite courses are taken.  All professional schools are highly competitive in their admissions process.  Thus, students should aim for strong GPA and professional school admission test scores. Students are encouraged to seek a major that they feel comfortable with, that they have a strong aptitude for, that is interesting and challenging, and that provides additional career options.

The College of Science currently offers Pre-Professional offerings in: Pre-Medical Sciences, Pre-Dentistry, Pre-Optometry, Pre-Veterinary Medicine, and Pre-Engineering.
