Option Pre-Medicine/Microbiology Undergraduate Option  

   Print Version Print

This option is offered within the following major(s):
Microbiology - College of Science



The Pre-Medicine/Microbiology option for the Microbiology major is designed to meet the current requirements for application to most medical schools in the U.S. (although students are advised to consult the requirements for specific schools before they apply, in the case of changes). Students pursuing a Microbiology degree receive a broad education in microbiological topics. The option focuses some of that education at the 400-level to ensure that students pursuing medicine take microbiology courses of interest to the medical field. In addition, the option adds important social science requirements and medical humanities electives that are not part of the general microbiology degree, but that are important for students pursuing a degree in medicine.



Courses used to satisfy the Pre-Medicine option requirements may also satisfy the Upper-Division Microbiology Electives and Upper-Division Microbiology laboratory requirements in the Microbiology major. Courses may also be used to satisfy areas of the baccalaureate core.
