Pursue your distinctive path at Miami U

At Miami University, most students who are preparing for careers in health and medicine pursue majors in the College of Arts and Science; the College of Education, Health, and Society; or the Department of Nursing.

College of Arts and Science
At Miami, students who pair traditional sciences or applied health majors with a Premedical and Pre-health Studies co-major receive excellent preparation for careers following graduation or acceptance into graduate and professional health programs such as medicine. Through the Mallory Wilson Center for Healthcare Education, students shadow medical practitioners and receive help with MCAT preparation. Over the past four years, 63% of College of Arts and Science medical school applicants were accepted—a great accomplishment when compared to the 43% national average.

College of Education, Health, and Society
Health-related majors such as Dietetics, Kinesiology, and Public Health prepare students for careers in everything from nutrition to coaching. Undergraduate research, interactive laboratories (with tools like our Anatomage Table), and exceptional clinical and internship opportunities provide students with the résumé-building experiences that employers seek.

Department of Nursing
Direct admission to Miami’s Nursing program allows students to focus on the Nursing curriculum from day one. Students enjoy broad and diverse clinical experiences as well as access to exceptional facilities. Our Nursing Simulation Lab includes several high-fidelity human simulators that allow students to practice skills in various scenarios and a safe environment.

About Miami University
Miami is a medium-sized public university where faculty are hired for their subject matter expertise as well as their enthusiasm for teaching undergraduate students. With its focus on a liberal arts education, Miami is committed to providing a broad-based education through the Miami Plan, which allows students to become experts within their field(s) of study while also acquiring skills and competencies such as critical and creative thinking, ethical reasoning, global learning, intercultural knowledge, information literacy, inquiry and analysis, problem-solving, teamwork, and oral and written communication. Our University ensures students have the program choices and resources of a large research university but the personal attention other institutions reserve for their graduate students. We offer flexible plans of study and encourage students to combine multiple majors and minors with cocurricular and extracurricular activities so they can explore new interests and acquire the breadth and depth of experience employers seek. By doing so, we foster a culture that nurtures creativity, embraces change, and is invigorated by new ideas and challenges.

Students thrive at Miami University because the path to success looks different for everyone, and students are encouraged to define and pursue their own distinctive paths.
