About Keck Undergraduate Programs

The Keck School of Medicine offers unique learning opportunities for undergraduate students, including two undergraduate degrees, summer research programs, longitudinal enrichment programs, and multiple pre-health minors.

The Department of Population and Public Health Sciences offers a Bachelor of Science in Global Health that is focused on the factors influencing the health of populations worldwide, and a Bachelor of Science in Health Promotion and Disease Prevention for students interested in advancing the health of individuals, families, and communities.

PPHS and the Department of Medical Education offer multiple pre-health minors that allow students to explore specific interests within the health care professions, health promotion, and disease prevention.

The Bridging the Gaps Summer Research Program provides outstanding undergraduate students who have been historically underrepresented in the medical sciences with an eight-week bench-to-bedside experience immersed in scientific investigation. Several other summer programs are offered for pre-med students to support academic success and professional goals through exposure to exceptional research and clinical programs at the Keck School of Medicine.

The Keck School of Medicine also offers longitudinal enrichment programs for undergraduates from USC and beyond.
