Pre-Professional Health

Maybe you’ve always dreamed of becoming a doctor and helping others. Or you’re planning to take over the family veterinary practice. No matter which advanced field of study you’re interested in, Michigan Tech’s biological sciences degree with a pre-professional health concentration can give you the foundation needed to succeed.

But we don’t just stop at your bachelor’s. Michigan Tech has an Early Assurance program with Michigan State to make the application process just a little easier. Pretty crazy, right?
