A Solid Foundation for Success

Because of the personalized nature of the education at Kansas Wesleyan University, our undergraduate Christian liberal arts curriculum offers excellent preparation for those interested in graduate professional training. Pre-Professional programs are designed for students who have a clear idea about their future careers.

A Pre-Professional program isn’t a major, rather it is a course of study that prepares you to attend law school, medical school, dentistry school or other post-graduate programs. A variety of majors and classes can satisfy professional school requirements. You will work closely with your Pre-Professional advisor to tailor your course work to the professional school you wish to attend.

KWU students who pursue Pre-Professional studies have had great success gaining admission to professional schools all over the country.
