Prepare for chiropractic school with real, hands-on experience. Study inside one of the region's only educational cadaver labs, or work with some of the most state-of-the-art biology equipment any undergraduate school has to offer. Boost your grad school credentials with a solid internship and research opportunities. Study under some of the most accomplished faculty in the region (and with a 14:1 student-to-faculty ratio, you'll be a name here — not a number).
Our graduates have gone on to study at schools including Palmer College of Chiropractic, Northwestern Health Sciences University (Bloomington, Minn.), and Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City.
We recommend pre-chiropractic students select one of the following majors (or both):
SPORTS SCIENCE MAJOR
The sports science major has a "pre-health sciences track" that is meant to prepare you for graduate work in the chiropractic or physical therapy fields.
- SPTS 107 — Chemistry & Sports
- BIOL 221(L) — Human Anatomy (w/ lab)
- BIOL 222(L) — Human Physiology (w/lab)
- BIOL 240 — Nutrition
- HPER 280 — Care & Prevention of Athletic Injuries
- HPER 384 — Human Performance & Skill Learning
- HPER 439 — Kinesiology
- SPTS 490 — Sports Science Internship
This is a more general major, and at first you'll study a broader range of biology-related topics. Then, you'll meet with an advisor to decide the best upper-level courses to take. It's a great "double-major" to add to your grad school credentials.
- BIOL 151(L) — General Biology I
- BIOL 152(L) — General Biology II
- BIOL 212 — General Botany
- BIOL 213 — Invertebrate Zoology
- BIOL 221S — Scientific Writing & Research
- BIOL 339 — Principles of Microbiology
- BIOL 58IS — Senior Seminar
- CHEM 111(L) — Principles of Chemistry
- CHEM 112(L) — Principles of Chemistry II
