Preprofessional Programs

NMSU offers a number of programs designed for transfer to professional schools through its undergraduate colleges. The programs are:

Preveterinary Medicine is administered by the College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences

Prehealth is administered by the College of Arts and Sciences (with the exception of prenursing which is administered by the College of Health and Social Services.)

Prelaw is administered by the College of Business and by the College of Arts and Sciences. Law schools will accept undergraduates who have earned bachelor’s degrees in any major. Many prelaw students take some law courses in their undergraduate program. The College of Arts and Sciences supervises a Supplementary Major in Law and Society, which includes courses from a number of departments and several colleges. It is described under “Government” in the Arts and Sciences chapter. The College of Business offers a number of Business Law courses which can be found under the prefix BLAW in the course description chapter later in this catalog.

Further information will be found in the sections of this catalog devoted to the colleges. (See also the paragraph on Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education)
