ARCHITECTURE

Fred Bennett, Tom Emmerson, Academic Advisers.
 
Professional schools of architecture usually accept one year of preprofessional study. Final acceptance for professional studies is determined competitively, and the level of expected preprofessional achievement varies considerably among schools.
 
The following typical two-year program will satisfy the basic entrance requirements of many professional schools of architecture. However, admission requirements vary between programs and students should plan their preprofessional studies to fit the requirements of the particular institutions to which they intend to apply.
 
Students interested in completing the preprofessional architecture requirements at Walla Walla College and in transferring to Andrews University for the architecture program should consult with the preprofessional architecture advisers for the recommended course of study.

LAW

Terrell Gottschall, Academic Adviser.
 
There is no specific curriculum for prelaw students. Courses designed to develop skills in oral and written communication and the ability to reason and think analytically are strongly recommended. This would include, for example, course work in history, political science, economics, english and speech.
 
Most law schools require a bachelor's degree and a satisfactory grade-point average and score on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) for admission. Law schools vary in the levels of achievement required for admission. Students planning to study law are encouraged to consult with the prelaw adviser.
 




Academic Adviser

Academic Adviser

MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY

Steven Lee, Academic Adviser.
 
Students interested in entering the field of medical technology should be aware that entry can be made through several different types of programs. There are three common types of programs available through our sister SDA institutions and in the Pacific Northwest. They are briefly summarized below:
a. 
Two plus two program. In this program entry is made into a combined classroom/clinical program following two years of undergraduate study. A bachelors of science degree is awarded at the completion of the two year clinical program.
 
b. 
Three plus one program. In this program entry is made into a clinical program following three years of undergraduate study. A bachelors degree is awarded at the completion of a one year clinical program.
 
c. 
Four plus one program. In this program a student completes a bachelors degree in any major, while taking a core of classes in preparation for the clinical training. Following graduation the student then enters a one year clinical training program.
Entry into a clinical program is competitive. Applicants are selected on the basis of such qualities as scholarship, integrity, dependability, and motivation for medical technology.
 
The exact entry requirements into these programs vary. Students interested in this major should contact institutions offering the clinical program early in their college career in order to plan a course schedule. In general the course requirements will include:
 
BIOL101, 102, 103General Biology 
BIOL222Microbiology 
   or 
BIOL465Bacteriology 
BIOL466Immunology

Academic Adviser

OPTOMETRY

Gordon Johnson, Academic Adviser.
 
While two years of college work is the minimum requirement for admission to most optometry schools, the majority of students being admitted have finished at least four years of college or received a bachelor's degree. Students interested in optometry should choose a major even though they may later gain admission to professional school before finishing it. At some optometry schools a student admitted before graduation must then finish a bachelor's degree while pursuing professional studies. This is not advisable since the requirements of the school awarding the degree must then be met.
 
The preprofessional curriculum should include as a minimum the following courses:
 
CHEM141, 142, 143General Chemistry 9
CHEM144, 145, 146General Chemistry Laboratory 3
ENGL121, 122College Writing 6
ENGL223Research Writing 3
MATH121, 122*Fundamentals of Mathematics I, II 8
   (may be satisfied by a good secondary 
   mathematics background) 
MATH181Analytic Geometry and Calculus I 4
PHYS211, 212, 213General Physics 9
PHYS214, 215, 216General Physics Laboratory 3
PSYC130General Psychology  4
*Fundamentals of Mathematics should be taken the first year since it is a corequisite for General Chemistry and a prerequisite for General Physics.
 

Since the requirements for other preoptometry courses differ widely among the optometry schools, students should obtain catalogs from each school of interest in order that all prerequisites may be fulfilled. Other required courses will include some or all of the following:
 
BIOL101, 102, 103General Biology 12
BIOL201, 202Anatomy and Physiology 8
BIOL222Microbiology 5
CHEM321, 322, 323Organic Chemistry 11
CHEM325, 326Introduction to Organic Laboratory 2

Academic Advisers

PHYSICAL THERAPY

Steven Lee, Timothy Tiffin, Ward Soper, Academic Advisers.
 
Entry into the practice of physical therapy is at the master's degree level. Most schools require at least two years of undergraduate level studies prior to accept-ance into the master's degree program. Loma Linda University (LLU) and Andrews University (AU) offer the master's degree with admission after two years of college. Students should consult the current bulletin of the school of interest for specific entrance requirements. Courses with grades below C do not count.

Academic Adviser

PUBLIC HEALTH

Stan Ledington, Academic Adviser.
 
Since the field of public health includes such a wide variety of career disciplines, the training opportunities offered by Schools of Public Health present a striking array of distinctly different program tracks.
 
Students preparing to enter graduate professional programs in public health should realize that the various career options require different types of preparation, and that they have a significant advantage if they anticipate prerequisite differences early. While no particular group of prerequisites can be considered constant for all program tracks, students will find that certain basic public health elements are fundamental to all. Therefore, the applicant who has included in his undergraduate preparation courses in general statistics, epidemiology, public health administration, environmental health, and behavioral science may benefit from advanced standing and/or course waivers for these requirements once accepted into the graduate program.
