This is the preliminary (or launch) version of the 2024-2025 VCU Bulletin. Courses that expose students to cutting-edge content and transformative learning may be added and notification of additional program approvals may be received prior to finalization. General education program content is also subject to change. The final edition and full PDF version will include these updates and will be available in August prior to the beginning of the fall semester.

VCU offers eight pre-professional health minors for undergraduate students interested in pursuing future admission to professional health programs such as dentistry, medicine, occupational therapy, optometry, pharmacy, physical therapy, physician assistant or veterinary medicine. Students are supported both by a pre-professional health academic adviser in the College of Humanities and Sciences and by a team of pre-professional health career advisers in VCU Career Services. The advising and career services provided by these offices will prepare highly qualified, confident and knowledgeable pre-professional health students for admission to professional health programs.

Additionally a post-baccalaureate health sciences certificate is available to students who have already earned bachelor’s degrees in non-science areas and plan to enter doctoral-level health science training programs.
