Alumni Career Survey
We conducted an alumni survey in 2017 to track the career paths of our undergraduates over time. We looked at more than 30 career categories and grouped majors by four major divisions: humanities, natural sciences, social sciences and engineering. We surveyed the class of 1997 (20 years after graduation), the class of 2007 (10 years after graduation), and the class of 2012 (5 years after graduation). What we found is that alumni are active in nearly all career categories, regardless of major!
