Pre-Professional Programs

Washington & MNU COOPERATIVE PROGRAM

The MNU-WashU Cooperative Program gives MNU students an accelerated pathway to obtain dual bachelor’s degrees from MNU and from Washington University. Students choose to spend 3 years at MNU and then transfer to Washington University for 2 years to earn a bachelor’s degree or for 3 years to get a bachelor’s and master’s degree in engineering. While studying at MNU, students also have time to pursue athletics, music, and other extracurricular activities. At Washington University, students have access to a top ranked engineering school with a wide variety of engineering specializations.

K-STATE & MNU COOPERATIVE PROGRAM
The MNU & K-State Cooperative Program gives MNU students the opportunity to earn up to 9 credit hours toward their bachelor’s degree by taking advanced science courses at K-State Olathe. These courses also count as graduate credit toward an M.S. in Veterinary Biomedical Science or a Professional Science Master’s degree in Applied Biosciences. This allows MNU students the opportunity to access courses not offered at MNU with the potential for an accelerated pathway to a master’s degree.
Kansas City University & MNU COOPERATIVE PROGRAM
The MNU-KCU cooperative program gives MNU students an accelerated pathway to becoming a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) while earning an undergraduate degree from MNU. Students spend 3 years at MNU completing all the general education courses as well as prerequisite science courses and then transfer to KCU for 4 years to complete the requirements to become a D.O.
