Premedical, Predental, Preveterinary and Other Medically Oriented Professions

The Department of Biological Sciences can advise any university student interested in most of the medically oriented professions including medical, dental, veterinary, physical therapy, osteopathic, chiropractic, podiatry and physician’s assistant programs. Pertinent information and guidance as to recommended courses for each area, professional schools’ requirements, how to apply and how to prepare for the MCAT, DAT, VCAT and GRE, where applicable, is available at


Advising for students considering entering law school after graduation is provided by Bridgewater State University. Law schools are generally seeking students with strong academic liberal arts backgrounds who have demonstrated a high degree of competence in their ability to write with clarity, reason logically and analyze complex ideas. While law students come from a variety of majors, it is useful to have a balanced curriculum with some preparation in history, English, government and philosophy. Students interested in a legal career should consult with Dr. Mark Kemper of the Department of Political Science or Dr. Aeon Skoble of the Department of Philosophy.
