Pre-professional Programs

Saint Mary's offers eight pre-professional programs to assist our students with their post-graduate life.

Many students graduate from Saint Mary's and enroll in grad school to provide additional preparation for their career interests. No matter the department, Saint Mary's faculty members work exceptionally hard to be sure that students are well-prepared for the next chapter of their lives.

At Saint Mary's, a pre-professional program is not considered a major. Engagement with a pre-professional program does allow you to connect with individuals who share similar interests and to connect with faculty members on a more regular basis for course and career guidance.
