“95 percent of our graduates go on to have a wide-range of careers, not just in academia,” says Dr. Galea. “Our graduates are trained in research, writing, and critical thinking. They have careers in pharmaceuticals, publishing, and policy. And because of the program's interdisciplinary nature, many graduates have careers in health care.”
