One of the hallmarks of a University of Rochester education is the freedom to design a curriculum that is built around your interests, not around a long list of requirements. Many Rochester students take advantage of this flexibility by pursuing double majors and even the occasional triple major.
An even more interest-intensive option is to apply to our Combined-Admission Programs (CAPs) in education, engineering, or medicine. These programs combine a bachelor's degree with a graduate/professional degree, simplify the admission process (granting admission to both programs simultaneously), and provide access to exclusive events, mentoring, networking, and other outstanding opportunities.
Careers in education, engineering, and medicine are in high demand and can be vastly rewarding fields, but the path required to get there is often long and difficult. The University of Rochester's CAPs — among just a few such programs in the country — can help you get there faster and achieve success along the way by:
