pre–health information management
In general, do not capitalize the names of academic programs; Samford-specific exceptions follow. Capitalize the names of programs in headings, subheadings, titles of works and tables of contents, as needed.
When an academic program is one of several closely related programs in that department, and the department markets that program under one specific name (i.e., uses that name in advertisements, catalogs and departmental or school publications), usage may dictate its capitalization.
Try not to use program in place of major or department. Program often implies a separate administration or faculty. When describing a student’s activities, it may be best to use department, major or degree program rather than simply program.
Should you choose for whatever reason to capitalize the full name of an academic program, do not capitalize program when used as a short form.
