With an Undergraduate Certificate in pre-health sciences, you can complete universal minimum course requirements and learn from Creighton faculty in pre-health disciplines, including pre-med/pre-dentistry, pre-pharmacy and more. You’ll receive a pre-health studies certificate awarded by Creighton University, an institution with a reputation for health sciences education.
