Graduate Placement Record
Since the beginning of 2000, the Department of Near Eastern Studies has awarded fifty-six Ph.D.s. While the available data does not permit us to present complete information on the type of jobs sought upon completion of the Ph.D. or on the first positions held by these graduates, thirty-nine or 70% now hold tenured or tenure-track positions. Another six (11%) currently have postdoctoral fellowships or non-tenure-track teaching jobs. Eleven (19%) have employment outside of college- or university-level teaching positions. Of these, two (4%) hold university administrative positions; three (5%) work in government jobs; three (5%) work for non-profits; and three (5%) are in business.
