Professional Career Options

Purdue students pursue a variety of career fields in law, healthcare and veterinary medicine. Typically these are career interests--not majors. You can major in what interests you most and also pursue one of these fields. Majoring in something you find compelling can also provide you with alternate career options in case you change your mind or do not gain immediate entrance into the professional program of your choice.

Our pre-professional advisors are available to help you explore your options and choose one that is a good fit, to learn about the credentials to enter each field, and to assist you with applying into one of these exciting professions.
