Newman University is prepared to advise and assist students with adequate undergraduate programs as a preparation for certain professions. Advisors work closely with professional schools in providing the broad liberal arts education as well as the restricted courses needed for meeting the requirements for admission into medical, law and other professional schools.
PREMEDICAL students are advised to consult the admission requirements of the medical school they plan to enter. Usually, a four-year liberal arts degree program is a requirement. A wide variety of academic programs which meet all the requirements for admission to medical school are available, including a variety of major areas such as biology, chemistry, psychology, etc.
PREDENTAL students can complete the minimum requirement for admission to most dental schools with three years of academic work, although a bachelor’s degree is preferred. Again, predental students are advised to learn admissions requirements of a dental school they plan to enter and then work with the predental advisors to fulfill that program here.
PRELAW students are encouraged to pursue a course of study which emphasizes skills in analysis and communication. No specific majors are recommended for admission to law school. The American Association of Law Schools and the Committee on Pre-Legal Studies strongly recommend a program of study that is liberal in content. Students interested in law should consult the requirements of the particular schools in which they are interested and work with the prelaw advisors at Newman to determine their program of study.
