A new report from Zippia finds Western New England University to be #5 in the nation and #1 in Massachusetts when it comes to preparing graduates for the job market! The analysis by the career-focused site utilized data from the federal government’s College Scorecard, which looks at employment rates 10 years after students graduate. 

Preparing for a career in the health sciences
• Through the Early Assurance Program (EAP), qualifying high school seniors applying to the Pre-pharmacy program can be assured a seat in our Doctor of Pharmacy program if they meet the requirements.
• In our 19 labs in the Center for Sciences and Pharmacy, we offer six science majors (Biology, Chemistry, Forensic Biology, Forensic Chemistry, Health Sciences, and Health Studies) and three pre-professional health programs, including Pre-physician Assistant, Pre-optometry, and Pre-pharmacy (affiliated with our own on-campus Doctor of Pharmacy program). 
• The Health Science major provides foundational science prerequisites for our students to move on to various medical schools and programs. 
• Our Health Studies major prepares students to obtain more advanced training in health-related fields that focus on the social, psychological, and public health perspectives. A concentration is also offered in Pre-occupational Therapy for students who intend to pursue a Doctor of Occupational Therapy degree, which they may do at Western New England University.
