The following course recommendations by academic year are intended to be used as guides for those interested in the healthcare professions. Students' schedules will deviate from these suggestions as a result of courses taken prior to entering Emory & Henry (e.g., dual enrollment credits; high AP scores) or their levels of performance in prerequisite courses (e.g., minimally passing or failing grades in prerequisite courses). Therefore, it is essential that students work with their advisor(s) to select courses for specific semesters that apply to their individual circumstances.
Along with these courses, it is best that you take introductory courses in your intended major, if it is not one associated with the courses above, and courses necessary to fulfill general education requirements (e.g., Transition I; Foundations I).
Advanced courses in your major, if not one of those above, an introductory course in a potential minor field (if a minor is desired and not one of the above fields), and general education courses (e.g., Foundations II; completion of Modes of Inquiry).
Completion of courses in major and minor (if chosen) fields and completion of general education requirements (e.g., Great Works in Context; Connections). The completion of independent research projects (e.g., Senior Project; Honors Thesis) is recommended. For some fields, such as Physical and Occupational Therapy, internships or other significant practicum experiences are required.
