Our alumni have gone on to work in all kinds of different fields. They are pediatricians, transit engineers, video game designers, publicists, technical writers, corporate executives, teachers, lawyers, speech pathologists, stockbrokers, university administrators, military officers, non-profit directors, and ministers. And in these and many other fields, they have distinguished themselves by their critical thinking, commitment, and creativity.

We invite all of our alumni to stay in touch with us—we love hearing about the great things that happen once people leave this department and put their degrees to work in the world. Do you want to become involved in the department? We welcome your ideas and participation! Or perhaps you would like to know how to donate to this department and help support its mission.
