Bachelor of Science in Pre-Medical Profession (B.S.)

Gain critical skills to prepare for graduate school as you learn to articulate and defend a Christian perspective on ethical issues in medicine.

The Pre-Medical Profession program at CCU is specifically crafted to provide a strong foundation for students who intend to pursue post-graduate study in a field of medicine. Offered through the School of Science and Engineering, our pre-medical program courses are designed to equip students with the skills and abilities they will need to take the MCAT, as well as to help them gain admission to medical school.

This program will also equip students to gain admission to a variety of para-medical graduate programs, including osteopathic medicine, chiropractic medicine, podiatry, dentistry, and optometry. The Pre-Med major can also be a springboard into pharmacy school, veterinary school, or into a career in public health.

For students planning to continue on to graduate school, it is important to be aware of the pre-medical course sequence in order to stay on track and graduate in four years.

Pre-Medical Profession at CCU

CCU's Pre-Medical Profession program prepares our students to articulate and defend a Christian perspective on ethical and controversial issues in medicine. We recognize the importance of these skills in Christian service, and we challenge our students to think and debate crucial issues of Christian ethics in all our courses. In addition, CCU offers our students ample opportunities to participate in missions and ministry experiences that give them a competitive advantage when applying for medical school. Our worldview is holistic: we consider the whole person, body, soul, and mind when discussing patient and health care.

About the School of Science and Engineering

In the School of Science and Engineering at Colorado Christian University, character forms the bedrock of God-honoring and kingdom-building science. We aim to help our students explore the world that God created, use cutting-edge technology, and discover how faith interacts with questions that arise out of studying science. We focus on teaching our students how to articulate a Christian perspective on issues such as bioethics, ecology, and human life.

Science and engineering programs are taught within the world of ideas, synthesizing the liberal arts, advanced theories, and applied technology. Our faculty intentionally seek out ways to hone a Christ-like character in our students, inspiring them to become moral and ethical, world-changing leaders. Purposefully small classes and laboratories invite students to learn with their hands as well as their minds. This instills a level of mastery necessary to become a leader in rapidly-advancing fields of science and engineering.
