Pre-Professional Programs

Westminster College prepares students for professional studies in many disciplines: medicine, law, the ministry, business administration, dentistry, engineering, social work, and numerous others. Students who enter such programs have an undergraduate major in a standard disciplinary or interdisciplinary field of study in the liberal arts. Westminster also offers individual interdisciplinary programs to meet specific professional goals. Westminster has a strong record in preparing students for graduate and professional schools. Some professional schools will admit well-qualified students before they complete their undergraduate degree programs. Under the following conditions, a student may be granted a baccalaureate degree by Westminster College upon satisfactory completion of a professional program at an accredited school: completion of a minimum of 96 semester hours at Westminster with a grade point average of at least 2.500; completion of all College requirements (with the exception of the senior capstone requirement); and a minimum of 24 semester hours in the major with grades of C- or better. The arrangements must be approved in advance by the major program and the Academic Standards Committee.
