Mills College has a rich history of educating women leaders in many fields, including health sciences and law. Pre-law and pre-med are popular areas of study, and Mills has strong programs to prepare you for success in these areas. However, as at most colleges and universities, these are not majors. Instead, these areas of study can be combined with many different majors. Guidelines for successful preparation for medical school or law school are given here. Students interested in allied health fields like pharmacy, dental school, or veterinary school are encouraged to contact the pre-med faculty for more information.
Guaranteed admission to Boston's Simmons College—a Mills partnering top ranked nursing school—is available to Mills pre-nursing certificate graduates who meet certain criteria.
