Students from across the whole university have the opportunity to take Great Texts.
Pre-Medicine and Great Texts
If you are a pre-medical student and in the Honors Program, Great Texts is an ideal major or double-major. Download the GTX, Premedicine & Honors Program 4-Year Planner.
If you are not in the Honors Program, you can still easily and profitably combine Great Texts with a Pre-Medical curriculum. Download the GTX & Premedicine 4-Year Planner.
