Pre-professional Health-Related Combined Degree Programs
Harnessing the resources of multiple universities
A number of combined degree programs are available to you through a series of articulation agreements with area colleges and universities.
These programs are coordinated through the Department of Applied Science and Technology and the Health Sciences Advisory Committee.
Students participating in these programs spend three years at Saint Peter’s University in a pre-professional program (pre-physicians assistant, pre-pharmacy, and pre-physical therapy) and then finish their professional degree at another institution in three or four additional years.
These combined degree programs represent only particular options for ultimately obtaining a graduate physicians assistant, physical therapy, or pharmacy degree.
If you complete a traditional four-year bachelor’s degree at Saint Peter’s, take the courses required for a particular graduate program, and show high academic performance, you may also qualify for application to other graduate programs.
