Pre-professional Degrees: Medicine & Law

There's no single undergraduate path to professional school. A student who plans to continue on to medical school may major in any number of programs, from the humanities to engineering, while students interested in law school can pursue undergraduate degrees in business, the sciences, history and even philosophy.

In the College of Arts and Sciences, there are two pre-professional joint degree options that can help you get where you want to go:

BA/BS + MD (Students Entering Fall 2018)

Eligible Majors

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Psychology

Note: The Accelerated BA/BS + MD program is being discontinued and being replaced by a new BA/BS+MD 4+4 Early Assurance program starting with students admitted for the fall of 2018. For students who are currently enrolled in the Accelerated BA/BS + MD program and were admitted 2017 and before, please contact Undergraduate Adviser Jenny Rubin at if you have any questions.
