Upon successful completion of their Felician coursework, students will be able to demonstrate competence in scientific reasoning and quantitative analysis, critical thinking, and written communication, as well as proficiency in application of fundamental principles and laboratory methods in biology and chemistry. Students will also demonstrate an understanding of the ethical challenges and responsibilities of applying scientific knowledge, the relationship of Franciscan values to professional practice, and the potential contributions of science-related professions to human welfare and sustainability.

In most of the pre-professional programs, students take three years of required courses at Felician, with their first year of professional school courses counting toward their fourth year for the B.S. (The exception is Occupational Therapy, which requires a four-year sequence of courses at Felician.) An additional 2-3 years at the professional school is needed for the graduate degree (duration depending on whether a Masters or Doctorate is needed).

Students should declare their intention to pursue a specific articulated program as soon as possible within their first year at Felician to ensure proper scheduling of the correct sequence of courses. Note that each program has a GPA requirement for entry into the cooperating professional school, and may have other qualifications as indicated in the individual program requirements summarized below.

Four Year Plan

In each program, students must achieve a minimum grade of C in all science and math courses.

Founded in 1942 by the Felician Sisters, Felician University is one of the few Franciscan universities in the country, and the only one in New Jersey. We’ve built our reputation with an emphasis on service and respect for humanity, as was the dream of Blessed Mary Angela Truszkowska - the foundress of the Felician Sisters more than a century ago. Even today, we strive to represent those values in everything we do. Read less
