ARCHITECTURE

Laurel Dovich, 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.

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:
 
BIOL 101, 102, 103 General Biology  
BIOL 222 Microbiology  
BIOL 466 Immunology  
CHEM 141, 142, 143 General Chemistry  
CHEM 144, 145, 146 General Chemistry Lab

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY ASSISTANT

Curtis Kuhlman, Academic Adviser.
 
The increased demand for occupational therapists has created a demand for Occupational therapy assistants. These programs are usually a two-year total and students receive an Associate Science Degree upon completion. Loma Linda University (LLU) offers this program with one year of college prerequisite courses and one year of training at LLU. Courses with grades below C do not count on the program. Courses at Walla Walla College which meet these prerequisites are:

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:
 
CHEM 141, 142, 143 General Chemistry   9
CHEM 144, 145, 146 General Chemistry Laboratory   3
ENGL 121, 122 College Writing   6
ENGL 223 Research Writing   3
MATH 121, 122 *Fundamentals of Mathematics I, II   8
    (may be satisfied by a good secondary mathematics background)

PHYS 211, 212, 213 General Physics   9
PHYS 214, 215, 216 General Physics Laboratory   3
PSYC 130 General 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 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:
 
BIOL 101, 102, 103 General Biology   12
BIOL 201, 202 Anatomy and Physiology   8
BIOL 222 Microbiology   5

PHYSICAL THERAPY

Steven Lee, Timothy Tiffin, 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.

PHYSICIAN ASSISTANT

Jonathan Neidigh, Academic Adviser.
 
There is a wide variation in the prerequisites for entrance into a Physician Assistant program. A minimum of 3.0 G.P.A. is usually required for science courses. A bachelor degree is required for admittance into many programs. Usually a minimum of 1,000 hours of clinical experience involving patient contact is also required. Physician Assistant programs may lead to a bachelor of science (B.S.) or to a Master of Science (M.S.)
 
Requirements may include the following courses; however students should request information about current admission requirements from the professional school they plan to attend.

PUBLIC HEALTH

Shirley Wilson-Anderson, 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.
