Curriculum

The curriculum in pre-dentistry prepares you for entrance into dental school. Although some dental schools do not require a baccalaureate degree (B.A./B.S.) for admission, it is highly recommended that students plan to complete a bachelor’s degree prior to matriculation. Typically, students choose to follow a degree program in biology, chemistry, biochemistry, or general studies, although other majors may be pursued.

Pre-Requisites

Typical prerequisite courses include completion of one-year sequences of general biology with lab, general chemistry with lab, organic chemistry with lab, physics with lab, anatomy and physiology with lab, in addition to biochemistry courses with labs, and English composition. Students are strongly encouraged to obtain prerequisite information from the schools to which they will be applying and to work closely with their EOU pre-dentistry adviser when selecting appropriate coursework to meet the prerequisite requirements. Admission to dental school is highly competitive, requiring high academic achievement.
