At Weber State, there is no required major for pre-medical, pre-law or any of our other pre-professional programs.

Instead, you can major in any discipline we offer, while receiving guidance and support to help tailor your education to fit your professional goals.


In recent years, WSU student acceptance into medical schools (MD and DO programs) has averaged 62%, significantly above the national average.

Picking a Major

While you may choose any major while completing your pre-professional program, an academic advisor can help you narrow your options to gain skills and experience for your career.
