Pre-Professional Health Fields
These professions typically require that students earn a bachelor's degree prior to admission, and many students choose to complete an Associate of Science degree in biology while at TJC.
Students should meet with an academic advisor to review the course requirements for their field of interest and customize the degree plan accordingly. Acceptance into professional schools is competitive and applicants must demonstrate above-average academic ability, adult maturity and a strong motivation for their chosen field.
