Pre-Professional Advising

Pre-Law

If you’re planning a career in the field of law or simply exploring that option, we strongly encourage you to meet with a pre-law advisor in the Pre-Professional Advising Office. The office also provides information on law-related courses offered at Boston University, internship opportunities and the law school admissions process.

Boston University does not offer a pre-law major, but rather we encourage you to choose classes based on your interests and ability. Relevant skills include writing and oral communication and knowledge of current political and social issues.

The 2013 NAPLA/SAPLA Book of Law School Lists includes information on law programs offered by schools and universities across the country.

Pre-Medical/Pre-Health

If you are interested in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, or other health-related fields, the Pre-Professional Advising Office can advise on all issues relating to your professional goals, curriculum, professional school admission requirements, and the application process. The office also organizes meetings for interested students throughout their undergraduate years and maintains an extensive premedical and health careers library.
