Pre-Professional Health is a focus area at Montana Tech, not a degree option. Students in pre-professional health studies may want to pursue a Master’s in Public Health. A MPH degree trains professionals who tackle health issues that impact entire populations and communities. While at Montana Tech, you will work to meet the pre-requisites for MPH programs you are interested in.
