Academics by the Numbers
While Pomona College does not offer majors in Prehealth, Pre-Law or Pre-Engineering, we do provide guidance for students interested in these paths.
Information on our Prehealth site outlines the range of health professions (including medical, veterinary, dental, etc.), how to prepare (including which courses to take), how to apply to health profession programs, and how to reach out for one-on-one advising appointments. Our Pre-Law page offers information on resources and advisors whom you can speak with.
Pomona offers two combined Pre-Engineering programs with other universities: the 3-2 Plan in Engineering: California Institute of Technology and Washington University in St. Louis, and the 2-1-1-1 Dual Degree in Engineering with the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth.
