Personalized guidance to strengthen your candidacy
Our academic advisers are committed to your aspirations
There is no one major that best prepares students to apply to professional schools — that's why our pre-professional pathways can be paired with many majors. We encourage students who are interested in pursuing advanced studies in medical school, dental school, law school or other areas to choose the major that best aligns with their interests and strengths.
Even English and humanities majors go on to medical school, although it is far more likely that students interested in medicine will prefer to major in biology, chemistry, biochemistry, behavioral neuroscience or psychology. Similarly, students interested in a career in law might be equally as likely to study philosophy, English or history as they are law in society, criminal justice or political science. No matter the major you select, we will help you become the professional you wish to be.
Upon arriving at Quinnipiac, all students are paired with a dedicated academic adviser that is either associated with their major or that specializes in supporting students who are exploring the majors and minors they would like to pursue. Specialized advisers in law and in the health professions will offer the guidance you need around prerequisite courses, experiential learning, internships and entrance exams like the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) and the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT).
Through advising, internships, study away programs and research experience, Quinnipiac provides students with resources for crafting a strong application to professional programs. We will help make your profile stand out in a crowded pool of applicants.
