Career choice and choice of major field are of course related. They should not, however, be thought of as identical. Many of Fisk's pre-professional programs are organized within traditional arts and sciences disciplines, which the faculty believes are apt to provide the best professional preparation.
Students seeking help with the exploration of career options should consult their academic advisors or personnel of the Career Services Center. Students are advised to get to know the Career Services staff early in the college years, and not to wait until the senior year to begin exploring career options. The Office of Career Services is also an excellent source of opportunities for co-curricular experiences during the summer.
