    Solid Preparation, Early Admission Opportunities

    The program leading to the BS degree in Natural Science/Pre-Physician Assistant is designed to prepare students for admission to a professional school to continue their education with a goal of being a physician's assistant.

    If the student qualifies, the degree they can earn could help them with early admission to a professional school that has an articulation agreement with IUP. 

    At IUP, you’ll take a block of classes in biology, chemistry, and physics to give you a solid foundation for further schooling. You’ll also take at least 24 credits in the humanities and social sciences. If you prefer to finish your bachelor’s degree in four years at IUP, there are other options and other IUP majors you may want to consider.
