Pre-Professional Advising

  • Interested in the School of Business?The prerequisites required for application are under review for incoming first-year students (see the 2015-2016 Undergraduate Bulletin for requirements). Current prerequisites are MTH 111 (MTH 112 for Mathematical Business majors) and ECN 150 (AP/IB credit for either course will satisfy the requirement) and ACC 111 (must be taken at Wake Forest). Typically, students take MTH 111 or MTH 112 and ECN 150 in the first year, and ACC 111 in the fall of the sophomore year, but occasionally MTH or ECN is also 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 were either accepted or deferred.  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 and selection 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.
