CHOOSE ANY MAJOR YOU LIKE
If you plan to pursue a career in law, medicine, veterinary medicine, or a similar professional field, you need to do three things above all else if you're going to maximize your chances:
- Major in something you enjoy learning about
- Get excellent grades
- Meet the prerequisites for your professional area
Med schools, vet schools, and law schools don't give preference to any particular major when it comes to admission. With high academic achievement and the necessary prerequisite courses, virtually any major can deliver the preparation you need.
With WSU's exceptional academics and nearly 100 majors to choose from, your future is wide open.
SUCCEED IN PREMIER PROGRAMS
Health science programs at Washington State University are among the best in the nation. When you graduate from WSU, you're fully prepared to be a health professional.
WSU gives you extensive opportunities to experience the front lines of the health-care industry — you can “try on” your chosen profession through internships, service learning, and volunteer work.
Year after year, graduates of the University's programs in veterinary medicine, pharmacy, and audiology have nearly 100 percent pass rates for licensure or certification, far exceeding the national average.
SKILLED ADVISORS HAVE YOUR BACK
If you plan to attend medical school, veterinary school, pharmacy school, dental school, law school, or any other professional school after graduation, WSU has skilled advisors committed to helping you do just that.
From the moment you arrive on campus, advisors are ready to help with things like choosing a major, getting professional school prerequisite courses, arranging internships, and building a great application for the professional school of your choice.
PREPARING FOR LAW SCHOOL
Pre-law preparation should help develop your reasoning skills, communication skills, and abilities in writing and interpreting the written word.
With that in mind, the University's majors in philosophy, political science, and history offer emphasis tracks specifically tailored toward the skills and knowledge you need to be a strong candidate for law school.
