So, you want to be a doctor, dentist, veterinarian, optometrist, nurse, etc.? Congratulations! You will be entering a noble and sorely needed profession.

But did you know that you can become a healthcare professional without being a science major? Well, you can. In fact, you may graduate with any major or minor offered at Lafayette College including English, music, philosophy, economics, and government and law as well as the more traditional science and engineering majors. However, you still need to take certain courses in order to attend a health professions school upon graduating from Lafayette.
