Career & PostGraduate Advising

Post Graduate Advising

With an Arts & Sciences degree, you do more than make a living. You make a difference.

The ArtSci Difference

With an Arts & Sciences degree, you have the flexibility to study what you love and pursue a profession that's meaningful to you.

Through your coursework, you will gain the knowledge and skills necessary for any career, including critical thinking, research skills, communication, civic knowledge and cultural awareness. You will also have many opportunities to gain professional knowledge and skills through specialized coursework and experiences, like internships, research, community service, leadership training, and/or coursework.

Our liberal arts curriculum prepares you to contribute to a vibrant and just society and to thrive in the professional worlds of business, education, law, medicine, government, and non-profit industries. From 2013-2016, 94% of reporting graduates landed a position or place in graduate, law or medical school. For more information, visit the WashU Center for Career Engagement Outcomes Data
