Pre-Professional Programs in Biology

Many students who plan to enter a professional school, such as Education or Engineering, as undergraduates or who intend to pursue graduate studies in a professional school such as Medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary Science, Chiropractic, Optometry, or Nursing, follow a program of study specifically designed for that career path.  UW-Stevens Point offers a wide variety of pre-professional programs, and our graduates have an excellent record of acceptance by graduate and professional schools.  Although not required, we advise students in all pre-professional areas to get a bachelor of science degree before entering a professional school.  If you would like more specific information or advisement, the Department of Biology will assist you in finding an advisor to help you plan your program.
