Professional Health fields include Clinical Lab Science, Diagnostic Genetics, Pre-Medicine, Pre-Veterinary Medicine, Pre-Pharmacy, Pre-Optometry, Occupational Therapy, and Pre-Physical Therapy. Generally these professions will require post-baccalaureate degrees. Further, in many cases, undergraduate majors in many health disciplines do not exist. Students must still select and complete an undergraduate major in addition to their pre-professional studies.

Program: The Pre-Professional Health Degree is designed for students who wish to transfer to a four-year college or university in a Professional Health Program. While it is traditional for pre-health professional students to complete an undergraduate major in biology, professional schools, especially medical schools, often value a more diverse undergraduate education. For this reason, students who major in secondary education, communications, social and behavioral sciences or other liberal arts disciplines while completing their pre-professional courses are often at a competitive advantage for admission to professional school. In addition to preparation for transfer, this program provides students with a strong general education background. By satisfying the program requirements a student also satisfies the MTA requirements
