Pre-Professional Programs

The university offers pre-professional curricula. The varying requirements of different professional schools, however, require close adherence by the student to the catalog requirements of the respective college. Thus, students can complete one, two, three, or four years of work toward professional degrees at Columbus State University, depending on their objectives and the requirements of the particular professional school involved. It should be noted that most professional schools require an above-average academic record for admission.


The statement on pre-legal education of the Association of American Law Schools does not recommend any specific major or course work for the prospective law student. Many Columbus State University baccalaureate programs may develop the broad competencies recommended in the statement. Students should contact the pre-law advisor through the chair, Department of Political Science, for further information.

Pre-Physical / Occupational Therapy

Courses required for admission to physical and occupational therapy schools are offered by Columbus State University. The B.S. Kinesiology (Exercise Science concentration) has the necessary flexibility to meet these requirements and has extensive course content that is relevant to the practicing therapist. Please contact the Department of Kinesiology and Health Sciences for further information.
