Post-Baccalaureate Programs

Welcome to our database of post-baccalaureate programs!

Post-baccalaureate (“post-bac”) programs are designed to help a recent college graduate better transition into a professional school. For students who are still figuring out whether graduate school is the right path for them, or want to enhance their research experience knowing it will improve their competitiveness, post-bac programs are exceptional in preparing students with rigorous curricula and push them to articulating what they’ve learned.

 

For more information, see our post-bac program guide and our webinar on post-bacc/PREP programs.
