The preprofessional health studies program at Clemson is a great starting point for students interested in continuing on to professional health schools such as medical, dental, physicians assistant, as well as a variety of other programs. Although this program exists on the undergraduate application, we do not offer a degree in preprofessional health studies. Therefore, by sophomore year students are encouraged to choose a major. There are a variety of popular majors that easily fulfill the basic entrance requirements, but you can truly choose from any curriculum that fits your goals. Professional schools have no preferences or prejudices relating to major and are more interested in overall academic performance. This is evident in the fact that their entering students represent a broad spectrum of curricula from biological sciences to economics.
