The following data comes from the Career Center's annual Career Destinations Survey of graduating seniors. Our primary focus for this report is to illustrate the wide variety of employment and graduate school choices past students in this major have made.

The Employers & Job Titles section below includes full-time and part-time employment, and internships.

Please note: Students with double and triple majors are represented in each of their majors. For example, a double major in English and Computer Science will have her/his responses included in the report for both majors. Programs for which there are four or less responses will not have any data shown to protect the confidentiality of respondents.
