Pre-Professional Courses

Pre-professional electives provide academically rigorous introductions to various careers. NYUAD’s pre-professional courses tap into local institutions, organizations and businesses. They provide students with community engagement and experiential learning opportunities.

Course List

As most health care professional schools have specific undergraduate preparatory course requirements for admissions, students interested in pursuing a health care graduate degree should include all of the specified pre-professional courses as part of their undergraduate coursework.

Students interested in other professional areas should feel welcome to pursue as many or few of these pre-professional courses as are useful to them — consistent with maintaining the academic breadth that is a hallmark of an NYUAD undergraduate degree.

Many pre-professional courses are cross-listed with NYUAD majors and minors. Some are not. However, as most professions do not require that students follow a particular undergraduate major, students are encouraged to explore pre-professional courses regardless of any cross listing.
