Pre-professional studies define the intentions, not the majors, of our students who plan to attend professional school after undergraduate or graduate work.

Our faculty advisors help you explore the various disciplines and specialties and the coursework that will prepare you to complete a successful application to professional school.

All majors can seek admittance to professional school but those who build a strong base of appropriate coursework are at a distinct advantage. UIS offers a structured plan of courses and experiences in multiple majors that provide the curriculum needed to successfully apply to professional school.
