Pre-Professional Programs

Health occupations comprise one of the fastest-growing and in-demand career fields in the nation. These jobs are projected to grow faster than the average rate for all occupations according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Here at South Dakota Mines, our students are working to fill these demands by pursuing their bachelor's degrees with us while also preparing for advanced studies in a wide range of pre-professional healthcare programs.

At South Dakota Mines we offer three foundational degrees for any professional healthcare program:  Biology, Chemistry, and Health Sciences. With the addition of our pre-professional programs, students ensure they are taking the right classes to meet the requirements for the next step in their educational journey. Their academic advisor will also provide resources to gain experience through local job shadowing, research, internship, and volunteer opportunities.
