Pre-Professional Health Sciences

PPHS Program Information

While most PPHS students are biology majors, it is possible to major in chemistry, mathematics or an area in the liberal arts and still succeed in the program at EMU. Since course requirements for non-biology majors vary, students should check with their major department for specific details.

Because graduate schools value a broad education, a minor in a non-science area of interest is suggested.

Normally the pre-professional health sciences student will complete the required courses by the end of the junior year of study in order to be fully prepared at that time to take a professional health science school entrance exam (MCAT, DAT, VET or GRE).

EMU prepared me wonderfully for my career. I was well served to have had a background in the study of science viewed through the lens of the knowledge of God.”
