Trinity introduces new undergraduate majors in pre-occupational therapy and chemistry
Trinity CommunicationsMay 31, 2018
Trinity International University will begin offering new majors this fall in pre-occupational therapy, chemistry/professional emphasis, chemistry/pre-medicine and chemistry/forensic science.
All chemistry majors will take a prescribed core of courses, and choose one of the three areas of emphasis to complete the course of study.
“Bringing in the chemistry major will help those students interested in pursuing medical degrees after their undergraduate experience,” said Tom Cornman, dean of undergraduate studies and the graduate school. “We believe that having both chemistry and biology allows us to better serve our STEM students and help them progress in their educational and career goals.”
The pre-occupational therapy emphasis is part of the larger Bachelor of Arts in exercise science major. It is an important first step in the process of becoming a professional in the field.
“Upon successful completion of the program, students will be ready to enter a graduate program and achieve licensure,” Cornman said. “Our pre-occupational therapy program opens up a new field for students interested in helping others in life transitions.”
