Pre-Health Psychology

A major in Psychology Pre-Health is offered at Loyola University New Orleans in addition to the traditional Psychology track.  Psychology is the fourth most common major among medical school entrants. Our Pre-Health major retains the best part of our traditional major, and adds as adjunct courses the preparation which most medical and dental schools prefer in their applicants.  Much like a double major in Psychology and Pre-Health, it's one of three formal pre-med majors on campus.  Our pre-health major is designed for the student whose first interest is in Psychology and plans a career in one of the health professions.
