Health Science Programs

Do you see yourself working in a health care field such as medicine, occupational therapy or dentistry? To get there, you’ll need to earn a bachelor’s degree before you apply to the professional program of your choice. Getting into these specialty schools is challenging; you’ll need a minimum GPA, a personal statement and leadership or work experience, among other things.

WOU will help you get there. Our pre-professional programs are overseen by faculty members who will ensure you take all the right courses and all the right steps. They recommend majors in these fields:


You’ll need a bachelor’s degree to get into law school. Popular choices for majors are social sciences, natural sciences or humanities; but for your minor, you should consider legal studies with additional courses in accounting, economics, history, political science, philosophy, psychology, sociology, communication studies and writing.
