In addition to another major of your choice, form a foundation of understanding to prepare for a future in medicine.
MSU offers a pre-med intake major for students interested in pursuing a health care profession but haven’t yet settled
on a major. The program is designed to encourage students to explore their academic
options, understand the breadth of career opportunities, and stay on track with prerequisites
they will need for medical and other professional schools. Students also have access
to guidance and support from MSU’s Office of Health Professions Advising.
It is important to note that the program is not a major from which students will graduate, nor is it an intended major for nursing students.
