Pre-Professional Advising

Because students who are planning to pursue admission to a professional program have great deal of freedom when it comes to choosing an undergraduate major, Pre-Professional Advising is provided to students separately from the Academic Advising provided by the department of a student’s declared major.

Students planning to pursue a health profession work with specially-trained health professions advisors in one of two offices on campus, determined by the specific health profession being pursued.

Students planning to apply to Law School, or who wish to pursue employment in law-related areas, work with the UMBC Department of Political Science, which coordinates the Pre-Law program.
