Pre-Professional Degree Program

Learn more about MBU

Missouri Baptist University offers programs in pre-engineering, pre-chiropractic and pre-med in which you can take the core classes of your program at MBU and complete the remainder of your degree in your chosen engineering specialty at an affiliated university.

These programs typically require completion of core courses. The pre-professional programs at Missouri Baptist University provides those core courses.

Pre-Professional Engineering Degree

Missouri Baptist University currently has transfer/articulation agreements in place with the engineering programs at Missouri S&T. Scholarships are available for MBU students who transfer to Missouri S&T.

Pre-Professional Chiropractic Degree

An agreement between Missouri Baptist University and Logan University provides a  3+3 dual-degree, pre-chiropractic program that makes it possible for qualified students to earn both a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science from MBU and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Logan’s College of Chiropractic in just six years, one year less than the traditional academic study required by a Doctor of Chiropractic degree program. Under the provisions of this 3+3 program, qualified students must successfully complete a minimum of 90 credit hours at MBU with a grade point average of at least 3.0 in order to be eligible to be admitted to Logan. Upon admission to Logan and completion of the required 35 hours of coursework in their first two terms, while maintaining at least a 2.0 grade point average, students will have completed both their bachelor of science degree in Exercise Science at MBU and satisfied the first two terms that will lead to their Doctor of Chiropractic degree.

BS to Doctor of Physical Therapy

Given the similarity of missions and values, Southwest Baptist University and Missouri Baptist University have established an articulation agreement in order to facilitate the admission process for MBU graduates into the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at SBU.  MBU students who complete the following courses will meet prerequisite requirements for the DPT program at SBU and will receive preference points in the selection of candidates. The Doctor of Physical Therapy Program at SBU starts each Fall and is completed in 33 months. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis starting in September of each year. 

Applicants for the physical therapy program at SBU are required to have English composition and demonstrate computer competency. This agreement assumes that Missouri Baptist University will continue to have these same requirements for graduation.
