Professional Programs

Professions such as law, medicine, dentistry, and engineering ordinarily have two phases of schooling: pre-professional and professional. John Carroll cooperates with the students’ pre-professional schooling by offering programs of two, three, or four years’ length. Although there is increasing preference within professions for candidates who have completed baccalaureate programs, students with exceptional academic records and personal development may enter some professional schools such as dentistry or optometry after three years of pre-professional education. Students are urged in most cases to pursue programs leading to a bachelor’s degree.
