Job Placement

The majority of our Ph.D. graduates have gone on to tenure-track or permanent positions at the post-secondary level, in the U.S. and abroad. Of those who have not, some have chosen to engage in work outside of academia (e.g., in medicine, in music, as a member of a religious order), and some have chosen to conduct their searches only in very restricted geographical areas. Thus, graduates of our program who engage in unrestricted job searches have excellent chances of finding a position teaching philosophy in a college or university. Most do so in four-year Catholic colleges or seminaries: some do so in Ph.D. granting institutions or non-Catholic colleges.
