The Allied Health Science concentration is designed for students who expect to enter a professional school for cytotechnology, chiropractic medicine, pharmacy, or medical laboratory science. It may also be used for students interested in dentistry, medicine, occupational therapy, or physical therapy. However, students interested in these areas should speak to their advisors about other major options better suited to their needs.
For some programs, this concentration leads to an MTSU degree through completion of at least 90 credit hours at MTSU, acceptance into a professional school, and either successful completion of one year or completion of the professional program (3+1). A four-year option is available and encouraged for students considering certain programs. For students completing a 3+1 program, a minimum of 21 semester hours of junior and senior (3000- 4000 level) courses must be completed at MTSU. Students choosing a four-year option must complete at least 36 credit hours of junior and senior (3000-4000 level) courses with an average grade of C (2.00 GPA) or better. With approval of the dean of the college, a student may complete 12 of the last 30 hours at another college or university or by CLEP.
Admission to the MTSU pre-professional program does not assure admission to a professional program. Selection for admission is competitive and is made by the admissions committee of the respective program according to its selection standards.
