Pre-Professional Pathways are not offered as majors at Western, nor are they at most other universities, but they can be incorporated into or taken alongside any degree-granting major offered at Western.
There is no Pre-Chiropractic major offered at Western. Students prepare for entry to a Chiropractic graduate program by obtaining a baccalaureate degree, completing the prerequisite course work for entry into specific programs, and by obtaining a volunteer clinical experience under the direction of a chiropractor.
Students may complete undergraduate degrees in any area. Science-based majors are popular, but you should choose any major that reflects your interest and in which you will excel and enjoy. Use your college experience to explore academic fields, to develop basic skills and knowledge, and to demonstrate expertise and experience in a field of study (major) of your choice. Western pre-healthcare students have majored in a diverse range of academic disciplines, including Anthropology, Behavioral Neuroscience, Biology, Chemistry, Community Health, Psychology, History, Philosophy, Communication Studies, Spanish, and French as well as Fairhaven self-designed programs. Some pursue combined majors, such as Anthropology/Biology, Biochemistry, and Cellular & Molecular Biology.
