Best Answer

As a general rule, students wishing to carry on to graduate school and study medicine within the US, do not major in premed. Instead they study a series of courses from a range of departments covering basic Biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics.These courses are no different to those that would be covered by freshmen majoring in any of those subjects. Premed students tend to major in one of the sciences although estimates are that up to a quarter end up majoring in the humanities.

First of all, you need to write better English ("premed" not "premaid") if you hope to get into medical school some day.Premed programs at nearly any public four-year institution in the United States are good, as are the premed programs at private schools in the Ivy League, Stanford, etc. If money is a factor, there are strong premed programs at community colleges, too--check out the ones in your area.However, keep in mind that you don't necessarily need a premed degree to go into medical school. As long as you meet the course admission requirements for a later medical degree program, it might be worth considering majoring in something else (e.g. American literature, mathematics, history, etc.).

Should one definitely be premed if they want to go into public health or is studying public health at an undergrad level and taking some sciencemath good enough if your major is in the liberal arts?

I guess the real answer is it depends what you want to do in public health. No, you do not need to take the premed track if you would like to be a public health professional. In fact, you do not need any of the premed science requirements to get in to most MPH programs. Figure out what in public health you would like to do first (epidemiology, global health, health promotion, health policy, etc).
