NMU’s Pre-Professional Programs Get You On Your Way

You've discovered your passion. You know you want a career in medicine, dentistry or chiropractic care. Now you need to prepare to enter a professional school. NMU can help you get there. We know that professional schools look for students with outstanding academic skills, diverse interests and a broad educational background. That’s why our pre-professional programs are not undergraduate majors but rather courses of study that are a part of a broader liberal arts education. Northern’s medical, dental, physician’s assistant and chiropractic pre-professional programs are designed to help prepare you for the rigors of professional school, while our liberal arts curriculum will help you develop the critical thinking skills that are essential for beginning any post-baccalaureate school or profession.


Although most pre-professional students are science majors, you can pursue any major that interests you. And while you're working through the requirements of your specific degree, you'll also work closely with a pre-professional adviser, who will guide you through your pre-professional program and keep you informed about activities and deadlines pertinent to applying to professional schools.
