Blackburn College has an excellent, widely respected academic program in the biological sciences with a long tradition of preparing students for careers in medicine and related fields. Students interested in applying to medical, veterinary or other health programs after graduation are encouraged to major in biology. Our special major, biology: pre-med and other health professions, is designed to provide all of the academic preparation necessary to apply to these graduate programs. Nothing speaks better than our long history of success. Preparation for medical, veterinary, physical therapy or dentistry graduate programs typically includes a long list of specific science coursework typically leading to a Bachelor’s degree. In addition, the science faculty works closely with pre-professional students to pair them with local health professionals. These practical experiences in working professional environments strengthen applications to professional programs and help students appreciate the diverse demands of their chosen workplace.
