At Macalester, there is no one "pre-medical studies major." Students may select any major. It is important, however, that early on students learn about the requirements of the programs to which they might apply.

Community and Global Health Concentration
Many students interested in health professions and public health find the interdisciplinary concentration in Community and Global Health to be of great interest. This concentration can complement any major at Macalester and brings programming and events to campus.

Human Rights & Humanitarianism Concentration
Many students interested in health professions and public health find the interdisciplinary concentration in Human Rights and Humanitarianism to be of great interest. This concentration can complement any major at Macalester and brings programming and events to campus.
