Career Advisory Programs

Broad-based academic and career advising are great strengths of Holy Cross. As part of our advising commitment, we offer focused preprofessional advising programs for students who are interested in pursuing careers in medicine, law, business, and engineering. We also have a graduate studies advisor available to help students applying for graduate programs as well as various competitive and prestigious fellowship awards.

Our advising programs are distinctive because they are run by faculty members, not career professionals, and they are conducted in the context of each student’s goals and academic development, with an emphasis on values and ethics. These programs are not majors or minors; rather, they are course sequences, activities, and advising relationships that help students prepare while taking full advantage of the liberal arts curriculum.
