Biology, Pre-Professional, B.S.
The pre-professional concentration is appropriate for students who wish to apply to medical, dental, veterinary, or other professional programs. The curriculum is designed to provide the necessary prerequisite coursework and opportunities for students to acquire sufficient foundational knowledge in biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics to prepare for the rigor of these programs.
pre-health advisory programs
Several pre-professional advisory programs are available at Chowan through the Department of Biology. Included in this category are areas of Pre-Medicine, Pre-Dentistry, Pre-Nursing, Pre-Pharmacy, Pre-Physical Therapy and Pre-Veterinary Medicine. Students planning to pursue studies in any of these fields must plan their degree programs carefully. Although all require a similar core of science courses with laboratories, specific entrance requirements, entrance examinations, and admissions procedures vary from program to program. Students interested in these programs should contact the Biology Department and meet with the advisor to the program as early as possible.
