Why Pre-Occupational Therapy at Judson?


Many Judson University Science and Mathematics students have plans to pursue additional education after their undergraduate studies.

Whether it be graduate programs or beyond, our pre-professional programs help our students create a deeper catalog of scientific education in more specific areas of study in order to make their resumes more attractive to graduate application committees.

If you have a heightened interest in pursuing a career within the chiropractic field, our pre-chiropractic concentration will help you reach the next step after graduation.

Pharmacy Opportunities

The department also offers two-year programs for students interested in careers in pharmacy. After completing two years of basic science and liberal arts requirements at Judson, and securing acceptance to the appropriate professional school, pre-pharmacy students complete and additional four years for the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree.
