The Pre-Professional Pathways at Boise State University are designed for students who intend to apply to a professional school after graduating. Pre-Professional Pathways are not degree programs. While students still need to declare a major, a pathway helps students identify opportunities and coursework to make them more competitive for professional school after graduating. This option serves students who have identified with career paths in pre-chiropractic, pre-dental, pre-dental hygiene, pre-dietetics, pre-medical laboratory science, pre-medicine, pre-occupational therapy, pre-optometry, pre-pharmacy, pre-physical therapy, pre-physician assistant, pre-speech language pathology, or pre-veterinary medicine.
