SNU offers the basic science, social science, English, and mathematics coursework to assist the student with entry into professional schools of engineering, medicine, pharmacy, and other professions requiring these skills. The following programs are intended to guide the student in the selection of pre-professional courses. The courses suggested in these curricula can usually be completed in two to three years, but it may be advisable for the student to complete a full four-year degree program in the liberal arts before entering the professional school. It is essential that the student identify the particular professional school of interest as early as possible so that appropriate electives be selected and will be those required for entrance to that institution. The student's advisor will assist in planning the course of study to this end.
