Customizing your Academic Experience and Credentials

What is your career goal? At Holy Cross College, your future career will not be limited by the specific major you choose. By mixing and matching a major with a minor, a professional internship with extra classes through the N.I.C.E. program, service learning and a senior project, you can develop an expertise in an area that will help you prove to potential employers that you are the best qualified recent graduate for almost any specific career goal. Be sure to talk to one of our academic advisors to help you customize your four-year plan. Here are three popular examples of a customized program:

International Business: Earn a major in business and a minor in global perspectives and/or a minor in Spanish. Use your global perspective experience trip to research business development in the country you travel to. Work with our Center for Discernment and Preparation to plan an internship with a multi-national trading company.

Public Relations: Earn a major in communications with a minor in English literature, and/or a minor in visual arts-graphic design track, or a minor in business. Try out as a writer for the Observer or intern at a public relations firm in the Michiana area or in a city of your choice during the summer.

Social Work: Major in Psychology with a minor in gerontology. Intern and/or do your service work with a social agency or non-profit.
