Pre-Med

If first-year students do not bring in college credit for Calculus, they can take this particular Math course at a later time, as it is not on the MCAT. 

For that reason, Pre-Med advisor, Dr. Julie Rutherford, recommends PSYC 111 (Introductory Psychology) in the spring semester or SOC 111 (Human Society), since both of those courses/topics are MCAT material.

Psychology

The Psychology department recommends a newly-added course, PSYC 218 (Behavior Modification) to any first-year students who have already completed the equivalent of PSYC 111 (Introductory Psychology).

If a student transfers in PSYC 111 or PSYC 206 and wishes to take a Psychology class during their first semester, the student is advised to select one of the following courses appropriate for first or second year students: PSYC 206, 227, 218 or 345. Other Psychology courses should be taken during the junior or senior year.

The department recommends FL 201 – Faith and Leadership, during the second semester. This course is offered alternating years.

The department also recommends Biblical Hebrew (REL 211 in fall semester; REL 212 in spring semester) on alternating years (2020-2021). This is a World Language option that can be part of the Religion Major, the Religion Minor, and the Faith and Leadership Concentration.

Social Work

The social work program at Concordia is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education which means social work graduates are eligible for social work licensure, which is required for most social work jobs. Students interested in majoring in social work should request a social work faculty advisor and must make written application for acceptance into the major after completing SWK 150 (Social Work and Social Justice) with a grade of at least a B-. SWK 150 is a Core Social Science (SOCS) course so if students are not sure about the Social Work major/profession, they are still able to fulfill a Core requirement by taking the SWK 150 course.

 

Core S course, so if they are not sure and just want to check out it out to see if it is for them .. they are still able to meet a Core requirement.
