Connect To Purpose


Like most colleges and universities, Bethel offers no specific major for pre-med students. Completing a major in a field such as biology, chemistry or psychology will give you the knowledge and skills to succeed in medical school and beyond. These are some of the more popular majors for pre-med students, though one recent graduate now in medical school majored in music at Bethel.

In addition to the courses required for the major you choose, Bethel faculty recommend these courses in preparation for a medical career:
  • Zoology
  • Cell Biology and Microbes
  • Chemistry I & II
  • Organic Chemistry I & II
  • Biochemistry
  • Computers in the Sciences
  • Applied Statistics
  • Introductory Physics I & II
  • General Physics
  • Biopsychology and Health
  • Principles of Sociology
