Students can apply to professional programs after graduating from Augsburg University. It is recommended students review the admissions requirements to different professional programs in order to plan their Augsburg coursework. The Undergraduate Research and Graduate Opportunities (URGO) office includes a Health Professions Specialist who works with students pursuing health science fields. Students interested in other pre-professional programs work with their faculty advisor.
Pre-Health Science – including medicine, pharmacy, physician assistant, physical therapy, dentistry, veterinary medicine, and many other options.
Pre-Law – students can major in any discipline; most law school requirements will be satisfied with a record of solid achievement couples with an acceptable Law School Admission Test (LSAT) score.
Pre-Engineering – students often major in physics or chemistry because these majors develop the quantitative skills required in industry. Augsburg’s pre-engineering students work closely with their faculty advisors in preparing to apply to engineering graduate schools.
Pre-Seminary – students enter a theological seminary with several different majors, such as history, philosophy, English, psychology, sociology, or religion. Recommended preparation includes RLN 100, 200; at least two semesters of history (Western civilization); one or more courses in the history of philosophy; and Greek in the junior and/or senior year. The Bernhard Christensen Center for Vocation provides resources and support, including scholarship opportunities, for students considering seminary.
