Our graduates are well prepared for career and life

At Connecticut College, you develop the skills you need for success after graduation. Our rigorous liberal arts education and our four-year, award-winning career program ensure you're well-prepared for life and all that it brings.

We help you hone the critical thinking skills that enable you to approach every situation with clarity and apply your wide range of experiences to problem solving. You'll be invaluable in any profession you choose and ready for the best professional and graduate schools.

This approach gets results. One year after graduation, a full 95 percent of graduates from the classes of 2012, 2013 and 2014 were either employed or in graduate school. But what does that mean for you?

Dig into the data

Each year, we survey alumni one year after they've graduated  and scour LinkedIn and other sources  to find out what our most recent graduates are up to. We’ve uploaded the results from the past two years and organized the information in some ways that we find interesting, but that’s only the beginning. Every chart on this page is interactive, so go ahead: click, filter, sort and drill down into the data. Find out what graduates who pursued an area of study that you are considering were doing just one year after graduation. Explore differences by class year, location and more.

Global citizens

Connecticut College prepares students to be citizens in a global society through academics, hands-on international study, and internships and research opportunities. This preparation paid off for internationally-minded alumni in 2014, with graduates studying and working in 13 countries and on five continents. Those who have remained in the U.S. are living in 22 different states, plus Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C. Where would you like to live and work after graduation?
