Professional fields of study are those areas for which graduate level courses or degrees are required to enter that field. In Pre-professional fields, you prepare yourself for graduate work by taking certain courses are the undergraduate level. For example “Pre-Med” or “Pre-Law” are not majors at Stony Brook, but the advisors can help you enroll in a recommended set of courses that must be taken at the undergraduate level to qualify for admission to professional graduate programs.
