Students at Michigan State University may select programs of study that satisfy the admission requirements of a professional school of their choice, such as law or medicine. Since the admission requirements to professional programs vary among schools, it is not feasible to establish a single program for each profession that satisfies the admission requirements of all professional schools. In the field of law, however, the College of Social Science has suggested programs of study that satisfy the admission requirements of most law schools. It is the student’s responsibility to determine whether a proposed program meets the entrance requirements of the desired professional school.
Prelaw. Prelaw programs in the College of Social Science are available through the Department of Political Science and the Interdisciplinary Studies in Social Science Program. For additional information refer to those sections and to the university statement on prelaw programs in the Undergraduate Education section of this catalog.
Premed. Students preparing for medical school may pursue a premed program in combination with the B.S. degree program in several majors in the College, such as Anthropology, Human Development and Family Studies, Psychology, Sociology or the Interdisciplinary Studies in Social Science (Health and Society) major. Declared premed students will be advised by a preprofessional advisor in the College of Natural Science as well as by the academic advisor in their Social Science major.
