Our graduates presently hold academic appointments in more than sixty American universities and colleges and more than a dozen institutions abroad.

About 75 percent of our Ph.D. graduates obtain academic positions and almost all of these are tenured or tenure-track jobs. Others are working in government offices and the private sector.

About half of our graduates from the M.A. program hold professional positions and half go on to further academic work.
