What is a pre-professional track?

A pre-professional track is a pathway to graduate programs and careers, and is meant to complement your education.

Our pre-professional pathways help you decide what career to pursue based on your interests and then guide you to choose a major that best aligns with your career and what post-graduate programs (graduate school or medical school) are looking for in their applicants. We ensure you take the right courses and that your academic credentials and the hands-on, in-the-field experiences at Hamline give you a well-rounded skill set with the patient care experience and community to unlock what draws you to healthcare and prepare you to pursue your career.

My Hamline education and our alumni network helped me discover new passions outside my chemistry major. My first-year research experience with a Hamline graduate at Mayo Clinic sparked my interest in healthcare and prepared me for my pharmacy career.
