A variety of programs offers the Presbyterian College student a solid academic base on which to pursue a professional education. Designated advisers for each area of study work with students to assure success in achieving their academic and pre-professional goals.

Engineering Dual-Degree Programs
Students may combine study in liberal arts with further study in an engineering discipline under the cooperative dual-degree programs Presbyterian College has with Auburn University, Clemson University, Georgia Institute of Technology, University of South Carolina, and Vanderbilt University. These five-year arrangements permit students to spend their first three years at PC completing general education requirements and participating in the physics major program. The remaining two years are spent at one of the partner institutions studying in the chosen engineering discipline. Upon completion of the program, the student is awarded the B.S. degree in physics from PC and the engineering degree from the partner institution. Students should consult the registrar at one of these institutions for clarification regarding transfer work.

Pre-Allied Health Sciences
Students interested in careers in allied health professions often spend two or three years at PC and then transfer to a medical university or other professional school to complete the training in such fields as nursing, radiologic technology, physical therapy, and medical technology.

Pre-Dental and Pre-Medical
Students must adhere to a rigorous schedule to prepare for medical and dental schools and for post-graduate admissions tests administered during the junior year at PC. Interested students should consult with the pre-medical/pre-dental adviser at their earliest opportunity.

Pre-Law
Admission to law school does not require any specific course of study. Departments offering programs developed as prelaw training are: economics and business administration, English, history, and political science. An interdisciplinary minor that includes courses designed for a concentration in pre-law (but is not intended to be a pre-law program) is shown above. Each program gives students a broad background upon which to build formal legal training.

Pre-Pharmacy
Students may obtain at PC those courses necessary for admittance to a pharmacy school that accepts students at the third-year level. Because various pharmacy schools have slightly different requirements for admission, students and their college-assigned advisers should ascertain the specific requirements of the schools of their choice and then develop an appropriate schedule of courses.

Pre-Theological
A pre-theological student should schedule at least six hours of Greek and/or Hebrew and may be advised to major in religion. The student also should take as many hours of English, history, psychology, and sociology as possible.

Pre-Veterinary Medicine
Students interested in entering a veterinary medicine program will be assigned a special adviser who will help them arrange their courses at PC to fulfill the specific requirements of the veterinary medicine school of their choice.
