Career Services


Graduates of the Kevorkian Center's M.A. program have pursued a wide variety of career paths.  Our M.A. program graduates regularly place into top PhD programs in the social sciences and humanities.  Recent graduates have received offers to earn PhDs at Harvard, Columbia, Cornell, Johns Hopkins, MIT, Harvard, Northwestern, Princeton, Stanford, and of course, NYU, among others. 

Our non-academic placements have been particularly successful in journalism, as a number of our graduates have been successful as freelance writers and filmmakers and in full-time positions in outlets like Democracy Now, The New York Times, The Huffington Post, Al-Jazeera America, Al Monitor, Timeline Magazine and  others.  

A significant portion of our students go onto careers in the non-profit or education sectors, including recent placements at Freedom House, Just Vision, World Education Services, South Asian Youth Action (SAYA!), the Arab-American Family Support Center and Ceres.  Some graduates have gone on to become secondary school educators, including recent private and public school placements such as Friends Seminary, NYC Teaching Fellows, Excel Academy Charter Schools and more. Former students are working or have worked at the United Nations and various missions and consulates, as well as cultural institutions such as the Brooklyn Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Bard College of Decorative Arts. In the business world, at American Express, Deloitte and Touche and Merrill Lynch; in government, for the City of New York and the Peace Corps; and in policy research institutes such as the Council on Foreign Relations and the Middle East Research and Information Project.
