Medically related Post-Baccalaureate (Post-Bacc) and short Master’s programs are intended for academic enhancement or career changes. Most programs are 1-2 years long. Some students changing careers also attend a four-year institution, such as CSU, just to complete the prerequisites they would need to be eligible to apply to health professions programs.
