Doctoral Graduate Placements

Our Ph.D.s have been accepted to positions at universities such as Dartmouth, Georgia State University, the University of Arkansas, Southern Indiana University, Omaha, Walden, St. Paul College, Benedictine College, Arizona Christian University, and Sabanci University (Turkey).  Two of our recent Ph.D.s are tenured Associate Professors at Utah State. Some have gone on to pursue careers in government, such as working for the Department of Defense.  Other students accepted postdoctoral fellowships at institutions such as the Maxwell School at Syracuse University and Michigan State.  Several of our Ph.D. candidates have earned dissertation awards, including those from the National Science Foundation.
