As summer winds to a close, many of our 2022 Ph.D. alums are heading out into the world and moving on to their next adventures.
Nearly 87 percent of our graduates are placed in university positions, with 47 percent placed in top-tier research institutions. About 13 percent find careers in government, private or nonprofit sectors.
