My department had a large graduating class last year: 28 senior majors. I sent out a poll, asking students what their post-graduation plans were. This is part of a project I have to work up a handout of what our majors do with philosophy degrees after graduation. So far, 15/28 majors have answered.
5/15 are about to start graduate or professional school in the fall
7/15 are currently employed or have a firm job offer
The rest are seeking employment.
Choices for graduate/professional school include PhD (PPE at a German university, French literature, philosophy), MA (“Chinese and American Studies”) JD, MFA, a “fellowship to study language abroad,” and MBA.
Those with jobs include high school teachers, teaching English in France, paralegals, and “Media Executive at a Public Relations Firm.”
