    What does pre-professional mean? 

    Pre-professional means that you would like to prepare for a specific career. It's a set of courses that you should take if you plan on taking the exam and entering Law school, or medical school, after you graduate.

    It is important to note that a pre-professional plan (e.g. - Pre-law) is not a major. You could major in Instrumental Performance and be Pre-law at the same time if you wanted. However, most students attempt to major in an area that will complement their career choice.

    Here are some examples:

    • A Pre-law student might major in Government or Economics.
    • A Pre-veterinary student might major in Biology or Biochemistry.
    • A Pre-seminary student might major in Literature or History.  

    Why is Capital a good fit for my pre-professional plan?


    Choosing a pre-professional program and completing your plan does not guarantee admission into a professional program. We know that navigating through the first four years is challenging enough, so thinking about your post-degree plans can be mind-boggling. 

    At Capital, our professors are also your academic advisors. They are your mentors and biggest advocates.

    With a 12:1 student-to-faculty ratio, Capital can enrich your studies with personal connections between you and our faculty, and we have several programs in place to ensure student success – from academic advising and career development to our peer-to-peer compass leaders who help you align your vocation with your career.
