European and Mediterranean Studies majors : what paths do they pursue after graduation?
As an interdisciplinary program, the the European and Mediterranean major and honors major programs attract students with a wide range of academic and profesional interests and goals. CEMS majors go on to pursue an equally varying range of careers and advanced degrees. CEMS advisors and professors work closely with students to identify the best academic plan for achieving their professional and academic goals.
In the year following graduation, our students pursue advanced professional master's degrees, including law school and public policy/public administration programs; enter into PhD programs, particularly in History; or work in non-profit management, publishing, government/international governmental organizations, and journalism.
