Minor and Electives (To Complete Min. 120 Hours)All students preparing to attend a school of professional health should learn about the specific coursework required for admission to their schools of choice.  Most students often choose to obtain a minor in chemistry, as the majority of schools of professional health have prerequisites that include at least one semester of organic chemistry and biochemistry.  Some students may find that a different minor, such as psychology is better suited for their specific career goals.
