After Graduation

After Graduation ​

Students have a wide array of options open to them after graduation. Many education majors become certified and licensed teachers in Pennsylvania and other states, while many others take positions in unique teaching situations, missions work and other fields. Still others go on to pursue graduate degrees in education or related fields.

Education Career Services—our own departmental career office—helps students define what opportunities they would like to pursue after graduation. More than that, the career services staff works diligently to help students with the required steps to pursue those positions.​
