Pre-Professional Planning

Pre-Professional Planning

The University offers multiple resources that can assist students as they think about continuing their studies in a graduate or professional program or a specific career track. All GS students are advised to register with the Center for Career Education (CCE); in doing so, students may select which career tracks they are interested in and will received targeted emails relevant to particular professional tracks (e.g., arts, management, law, advertising, finance, non-profit, etc.).
 
Throughout the academic year GS joins with the other Columbia schools to host speakers and panels about preparing for careers or further education in fields like medicine, law, or international affairs. Announcements about these events are sent via the DOS News and Announcements newsletter and posted on the DOS News and Announcements page. Students are encouraged to seek the advice of the various professional and graduate schools at Columbia for information relevant to advanced studies. Most of this information is available on their respective websites, but information sessions hosted by the individual schools provide an excellent opportunity to ask questions and learn more about admissions requirements.
