Pre-professional Programs

Create a path to becoming a chiropractor, doctor, dentist, lawyer, nurse or veterinarian through Mount Mary University’s pre-professional programs. Our pre-professional programs are not specific majors, but the programs ensure you take a challenging and rigorous curriculum that will prepare you to take entrance exams for professional and post-baccalaureate studies.

Become a Lawyer

Mount Mary’s pre-law program provides you access to a pre-law adviser who will guide you on your path to applying for law school and becoming a lawyer. You will meet with your pre-law adviser at least once each semester to ensure you complete courses and activities that help you prepare for law school.

Most pre-law students choose to major in justice, but other popular majors include: history, English, business, international studies or philosophy. Learn more about the pre-law program.
