Pre-Professional Programs

Steer your college education towards the career you want. Our pre-professional programs can help open the door to your career of choice.

Pre-Med program

For many years, a Pre-Med or Pre-Professional track has been a major focus of the Natural Sciences department at MMC. Programs within the department provide excellent educational training for those who wish to go on to professional programs after graduation including Medical, Dental, and Veterinary school as well as graduate school in Biology, Biochemistry, Biomedical Sciences, Environmental Sciences, or Nutrition. These programs are particularly well suited to students double-majoring in other disciplines. The Natural Sciences department offers many levels of support to its Pre-Med students, from pre-professional committees that guide students in their preparation for professional programs to seminars that bring health professionals to speak to students in our program. Learn more about Pre-Med at MMC.
