Pre-Professional Programs

Our pre-professional programs help students prepare to apply to a wide range of health professional schools. Students complete a major(s) that align with the academic expectations outlined in the course requirements for the respective pre-professional track. For example, students in the pre-engineering program major in physics. Students should contact the advisor(s) in the respective pre-professional program their interested in pursuing.

feedback Pre-programs are non-majors and pursuing a pre-professional program alone will not lead to a UNC degree.
