Job Placement

UT-Austin graduates fare well on the academic and “alt-ac” job markets. Recent graduates have secured positions in a wide range of colleges and universities, as well as in secondary schools, higher education and humanities administration, publishing, technology, consulting, development, among other fields.  Our placement rates are above the national average for Ph.D. programs. We attribute this success to the outstanding training our students receive as researchers, teachers, and administrators.

Placement Record: 2008-Spring 16
