Graduates of the Kevorkian Center's M.A. program have pursued a wide variety of career paths. Some have furthered their education at NYU, Oxford, Princeton and other institutions in doctoral programs in Middle Eastern Studies, Anthropology, Fine Arts, History, and Politics. Others have gone on to law and medical school. 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, our graduates have worked at American Express, Deloitte and Touche and Merrill Lynch; in government, for the City of New York and the Peace Corps; as journalists, with the Associated Press and in governmental and consular press offices; and in policy research institutes such as the Council on Foreign Relations and the Middle East Research and Information Project.
