(Pre-Professional Programs)

The following section gives a brief description of available pre-professional programs with the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor's role in these programs.  However, only general information about each curriculum is given because the details of admission criteria to professional schools will vary from year to year.  If a student has an interest in one of the areas described, then the student is encouraged to contact a member of the Health Professions Advisory Committee.  This committee serves as a clearing house for information on all of these professions, and will be able to give the student specific details on the programs.  Without exception, admission to all types of professional schools is highly competitive and requires academic work considerably above average.  Members of the Health Professions Advisory Committee can give a prospective student the G.P.A. requirements necessary to compete successfully in a given year for specific programs.
