Some of our graduates go on to enrich our profession. The Department currently has former majors pursuing advanced degrees at Berkeley, Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Harvard, Princeton, Michigan, Stanford, Virginia and Wisconsin—among other graduate schools—and former students teach in some of the most prestigious universities here and abroad. Yet most of the students drawn to our courses have no interest in becoming historians. Instead, they go on into careers in business and the professions, embracing any number of interesting experiences and occupations along the way. Wherever they end up, our graduates find continuing value in what they learned in our courses—we know this because they stay in touch and tell us so.
