Judson courses fulfill all requirements for pre-medicine study, and graduates may immediately enter medical or dental schools. Faculty members in the Science-Mathematics Department serve as a committee to advise on pre-med courses. Students interested in the medical profession should contact these faculty members as early as possible.
The Pre-Law program at Judson helps students develop the skills necessary for successful performance in law school and legal practice. The course offerings are designed in accordance with the preferences of law schools for undergraduate study. Additional resources and guidance are available, including LSAT preparation, internship opportunities, and off-campus study programs to enhance preparation for law school and vocation. Students interested in the pre-law opportunities at Judson should contact the pre-law advisor, Dr. Craig Kaplowitz at email@example.com.
