Pre-Professional Advising

  • Interested in the School of Business?

    The prerequisites required for application are MTH 111 and ECN 150 (AP/IB credit for either course will satisfy the requirement) and ACC 111 (must be taken at Wake Forest).  Ideally, students take MTH 111 and ECN 150 in opposite semesters in the first year. ACC 111 should be taken in the fall of the sophomore year. An additional business class should be taken in the spring of the sophomore year. The application process begins in January of the sophomore year with an orientation invitation extended to all students who have taken or are taking ACC 111. Admission is competitive.

  • Interested in a Career in Health or Allied Health?

    Careers in the health professions (e.g., medicine, dentistry, veterinary) or allied health professions (e.g., physician’s assistant, physical therapy, nursing) do not require a particular major, but they do require planning in order to complete requirements and take advantage of additional learning opportunities, such as study abroad. Most pre-health students will take one to two science classes in the first semester. For important information about course recommendations based on your AB/IB experience and projected major, see the pre-health website.

  • Interested in Law School or Graduate School?There are no specific requirements for students interested in attending law school or graduate school. You are encouraged to take courses that develop your skills and interests, challenge you to think critically and creatively, and prepare you to read, write and communicate well. For more information, see pre-law and OPCD Graduate school websites.
