Maryville’s Pre-Professional Program advisers are committed to helping students arrange appropriate programs of study. Interested students should contact the office of the College of Arts and Sciences for more information or to arrange a program.

While no one major is prescribed for admission to medical, strong preparation in the biological and natural sciences is generally recommended, along with a solid array of courses in the liberal arts.

Common Requirements


There is no universal curriculum recommended for applicants, but most schools want to see that you’ve completed the following courses:
    •    One year of General Biology
    •    One year of General Chemistry
    •    One year of Organic Chemistry
    •    Calculus
    •    Physics I & II

    •    Economics

    •    Additional electives to total a minimum of 60 credits by the time of application

AP credit in the sciences should be supplemented with upper level course work.  Some schools have requirements not listed here, so don’t wait until it’s too late to determine specifically what classes you should take.
