You could major in Psychology if you so wished, but then you would also need to take additional science and math courses in order to have the minimum requirements completed to be eligible for medical school. In all honesty, it would probably be quicker and maybe even easier for you to complete all requirements if you majored in life sciences or chemistry.

    Yes, you can major in anything and go, literally. For med school you’ll need to take 4 chemistry classes (general & organic), 2 physics, and several biology. You can just take these sort of “a la carte.” You don’t need to be in any program, just take the courses before you graduate. Then take the MCAT.

    All though some pre-requisites (such as biology, chemistry,etc) are mandatory to get into med school, you can major in anything you want–med schools like to see students that are well-rounded, so majoring in Psychology actually is a really good idea.

    Good Luck.
