500X330_PostBaccThe Post-Baccalaureate Program at the University of St. Thomas is designed for any student who has completed at least a bachelor’s degree (or will by the time they begin courses) but wants to take additional undergraduate courses, seek a second bachelor’s degree or take pre-requisite courses for graduate school.

Types of Post-Baccalaureates:

  • Degree-Seeking Post-Baccalaureate – a student seeking a second bachelor’s degree or certificate in Pre-Anesthesiologist Assistant, Pre-Dental, Pre-Medical or Pre-Physician Assistant.
  • Non-Degree-Seeking Post-Baccalaureate – a student not looking for a degree but wishes to take a few undergraduate courses (most likely to fulfill requirements for a graduate program).
  • Pre-Health Post-Baccalaureate – a student wanting to apply to a professional health program (Medical, Dental, etc.) and needs the pre-requisite course, experience, etc.
  • Nursing Post-Baccalaureate – a student seeking an undergraduate nursing degree.
