Alum Career Paths

A liberal arts degree can take you anywhere—a fact that is borne out in the results of a recent survey that examined how alumnae are using their Smith degrees.

The poll, which was sent to alumnae who graduated two, five, 10, 15 and 20 years ago, found tremendous diversity in career outcomes across majors. Alumnae who graduated with degrees in the natural sciences, history, humanities and the social sciences, for example, found professional success in fields ranging from agriculture to biotechnology to education.

In the face of national discussions about the relevance of the liberal arts today, the survey results underscore the real-world value of the academic depth and breadth of a Smith education.
