THAT:††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† The Board of Regents of Higher Education authorizes The University of Montana-Western to add an Option in Preprofessional Health Sciences to the Bachelor of Arts Degree.
EXPLANATION:††††††††††††††††† The University of Montana-Western currently lacks a degree option that allows students to focus study on learning to enhance acceptance into and success at professional or graduate schools within the health sciences.† This proposal uses existing courses and faculty to supply students with such an opportunity.
