Students can complete preprofessional study at BYU before professional academic training here or elsewhere.

Students may major in any department but are encouraged to select majors and related preprofessional studies as outlined below.
Jay Newitt, Advisor (230 SNLB, PO Box 28200,  378-2021)
Prearchitecture students have several options, depending on the intended future architectural degree. One approach is to study only a year or two at BYU before transferring to another institution to pursue a baccalaureate degree in architecture. In these instances, students should plan their period of study at BYU to include, as nearly as possible, course work that will transfer directly into the future architecture program.
Students who plan to obtain a graduate degree or certificate in architecture elsewhere following completion of an undergraduate degree at BYU are advised to consider a baccalaureate program in art, civil engineering, construction management, or design. The choice depends on career and personal interests, academic preparation, and the requirements of the intended architectural program. Students pursing this approach should select their future program early and become familiar with all requirements, thereby avoiding potential disappointments.
Interested students should see a faculty advisor in the construction management program within the Department of Technology Education and Construction Management.
Don Bloxham, PhD, Advisor (380 WIDB, PO Box 25176,  378-3044)
The acceptance rate of BYU applicants to dental school last year was 66 percent.
Both high grades and Dental Admission Test scores are helpful for admission to a good dental school. Minimum course requirements for most dental schools are: Engl 115, 316 (or 312 or 315), Math 110, Chem 105-107, 351-353, Phscs 105-108, Biol 130, and Zool 261 or 460. Zool 229, 329, and 429 are highly recommended. Consult dental school catalogs for other prerequisites (380 WIDB).
A few dental schools will accept BYU students after three years of predental education. A BS degree in biology from BYU is still possible after completion of the first year of dental school. Most students graduate from BYU before going to dental school. Check in 380 WIDB for details.
Plan major requirements with the departmental advisor and predental study with the predental advisor.
Eileen Crane, Prelaw Advisor ( 2240 SFLC, PO Box 25524,  378-2318)
The study of law prepares the student to work in a variety of settings. Traditional private practice, business, government, consulting, public interest/nonprofit organizations, banking, and education are just some of the many types of settings in which lawyers use their legal education
The grade point average and Law School Admissions Test score are the primary factors on which law schools base their admission decisions. Law schools require a bachelor's degree but no specified majors; the presence or absence of particular courses does not affect admission decisions.
Students should consider selecting a major field that interests them and that may provide an alternative vocation should they choose not to attend law school. Even though no particular prelaw major is best for all students, students should emphasize intellectually demanding courses in the major and in other studies. These courses ought to include the skills expected of law students and lawyers: the ability to analyze, reason, read carefully, think abstractly, and speak and write precisely. These characteristics can be developed in many intellectually stimulating courses, such as those in which one studies the English language and literature, philosophy, accounting, sciences, and engineering.
For a personalized prelaw program, please contact the Prelaw Advisement Center. The prelaw advisor is prepared to help students (1) create a study program for the LSAT, (2) teach research skills for the law school application process, (3) provide data on likelihood of acceptance, and (4) provide debt and career management training for graduate school.
Students should strongly consider signing up for StDev 198R. This course is a prelaw seminar, taught during the first block of fall and winter semesters, that provides students with information about specific areas of the law. Through speakers and text, students preview legal issues and have the opportunity of writing law-related articles that may be selected for publication in the Prelaw Review.
Kim S. Cameron, Associate Dean (730 TNRB, PO Box 23152,  378-6823)
MBA Program Director, Gary F. McKinnon (640 TNRB, PO Box 23111,  378-7641)

MOB Program Director, W. Gibb Dyer (790 TNRB, PO Box 23018,  378-2664)
The programs in the Marriott School of Management are designed to prepare qualified students for rewarding careers in management and administration. Classes and study group activities stress the acquisition of professional managerial leadership attributes that will enable students to obtain work in public, private, and not-for-profit organizations. High ethical values and behavior are reinforced.
Applicants to the programs are carefully evaluated in four areas: (1) previous academic performance; (2) completion of a bachelor's degree (except for students applying to the master of accountancy program); (3) test scores on the Graduate Management Admission Test; and (4) work experience, extracurricular activities, leadership potential, motivation, and maturity.
Marriott School of Management programs, leading to the master of business administration, master of public administration, and master of organizational behavior degrees, actively recruit good students from many undergraduate majors. Applicants to the master of accountancy program, who are required to have previous educational background in accounting, can be admitted as early as their senior year. Interested students should contact the specific program advisor to determine any prerequisites.
Don Bloxham, PhD, Advisor (380 WIDB, PO Box 25176,  378-3044)
Students who wish to enter medical school should plan to graduate with a major that reflects interests and allows for an alternate career. Any major can serve as a premedical major. Come to 380 WIDB for help.
Courses needed to fulfill the requirements of most medical schools are: Engl 115, 316 (or 312 or 315), Math 110, 111, Chem 105-107 (or 111, 112, 226), 351-353, Phscs 105-108 (or 121, 221), Biol 130, and Zool 261 or 460. Zool 139, 339, and 439 are highly recommended.
Plan major requirements with the departmental advisor and premedical study with the premedical advisor. The acceptance rate of BYU applicants to medical school has been above the national average, but it is decreasing because the number of applicants nationwide is increasing and acceptance is becoming extremely competitive. The majority of students accepted to medical school have a GPA of 3.5 or higher in science classes.
Shane Schulthies, PhD, PT, ATC, Advisor (122 RB, PO Box 22096,  378-3982)
Physical therapy graduate programs base their admissions on cumulative GPA, the Graduate Record Exam, and clinical exposure, plus a BS degree in a preprofessional course of study. Competition is arduous, and a student must maintain a 3.5 or better cumulative GPA. Students changing majors to pre-physical therapy must have a 3.5 cumulative GPA to be admitted to the program.
Basic course work should include: mathematics, two semesters; physics, two semesters; chemistry, two semesters; psychology, two semesters; and zoology, two semesters.

Competition for freshman class spaces in veterinary school is keen, and students should expect to achieve above a 3.5 GPA. Many successful applicants have completed the bachelor's degree. Because course requirements differ with individual veterinary schools, students should familiarize themselves with entrance requirements for the schools to which they will apply.
Course work typically includes the following: English, two semesters; mathematics, one semester; chemistry, five semesters; biology, three semesters; physics, two semesters; humanities, three semesters; social science, three semesters; and statistics, one semester. It is also important to have experience working with veterinarians and with animals.
Students are encouraged to incorporate the preveterinary curriculum into an academic program leading to a career alternative.

Don Bloxham, PhD, Advisor (380 WIDB, PO Box 25776,  378-3044)

Risk Management and Safety
J. Wesley Sherwood, Managing Director (TOMH, PO Box 20100,  378-4468)

Compliance and training in federal, state, and local life safety, OSHA, and environmental regulations are also coordinated by the department, as are university insurance and workers' compensation programs for all full- and part-time employees.

Student Employment Services
(C-40 ASB, PO Box 21004,  378-3561)
To be employed on campus all students must have a U.S. social security number. Students who are ready to seek employment should also bring proof of acceptance as a full-time student to the Student Employment Services.
Undergraduates and non-degree-seeking graduates are required to carry and maintain 8.5 credit hours per semester. Graduate students are required to carry 2 credit hours and be accepted into a graduate program. Secretarial applicants must take an office skills evaluation test before applying for clerical positions on campus.
Certain governmental restrictions are placed on students from foreign countries. All international students are required to contact the International Student Office to determine their employment status the first time they work on campus.
Federal immigration regulations require everyone hired in the USA to prove work eligibility. A U.S. citizen may use a social security card, state-certified birth certificate, or U.S. passport. One of these documents, along with a current BYU identification card, will satisfy the immigration regulation. International students need a current passport with attached I-20 ID.
Finding a job depends on class schedule, skills, experience, and willingness to accept reasonable employment. Students will find it is a good idea to arrange their class schedule so that a four-hour block is free the same time each day. Some of the most common work shifts are:
4:00 a.m.-7:00 a.m.
6:00 a.m.-10:00 a.m.
10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.
11:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
1:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m.
The university cannot guarantee a job to any student before arrival on campus. Because competition for jobs is keen, students would be wise to come to the university with enough money to support themselves until they find work.
Most jobs on campus are listed at Student Employment Services. However, some departments hire skilled students without listing the positions with Student Employment. Academic departments select from their own students for reading, grading, and research assistant positions. The Missionary Training Center (MTC) accepts applications to fill teaching positions directly from returned missionaries or those who have native foreign language skills.
Student Employment Services posts many jobs from off-campus employers. Students are encouraged to contact these employers directly.
