All pre-professional programs are programs of study, not majors. Pre-professional students must select a major and minor by the time 60 credit hours have been completed. We encourage all students to strive for the four-year degree, while applying to their professional school of choice.
Multiple pre-health profession programs of study are available at ETSU. The Office of Medical Professions Advisement supports nine of those programs offered:
• Pre-Chiropractic Medicine
• Pre-Osteopathic Medicine
• Pre-Physician Assistant
• Pre-Veterinary Medicine
ETSU offers over 100 undergraduate majors from which the pre-professional student may choose. Although many students pursue a math or science degree, it is not required. Professional schools look for students that are well-rounded, which pertains to a student being socially and professionally competent. For example, while you may major in another field, you will still be a competitive student as long as you have strong skills and grades in the math and sciences.
