Academic Guides

Most health professions graduate programs do not require specific undergraduate majors. At Gonzaga, students are strongly encouraged to choose a major that you are genuinely interested in studying. This will increase the likelihood of academic success, which is often a big factor in graduate school admissions.

Health professions programs each determine their own admissions prerequisite coursework, but most require a strong foundation in the basic sciences. Based on best practices and available information, H3P has developed the following recommendations for courses students should complete based on their pre-health interest. Students should use this list of recommended coursework as a guide, and work with advisors to determine an academic plan that best fits their individual needs and goals.


Pre-Health Undergraduate Mentoring Program

The Health Professions Pathways Program (H3P) coordinates a mentoring program that matches early-career students (typically first / second-year students) with pre-health students further along in their academic and career journeys (typically third / fourth-year students).
