Professional Career Placement 

MAPSS places more graduates in research, both for-profit and not-for-profit, than any other field. From the Class of 2019, of those primarily seeking employment, 85% of our graduates had accepted full-time roles within six months of graduation. When contract and part-time roles were added, this outcome increased to 93% (2019 MAPSS Placement Survey).

A Wide Range of Careers

One of the greatest benefits to interdisciplinary study is the ability to customize learning and possible career trajectories based on the interests of the individual. For that very reason, there is great diversity in the types of positions, organizations, and industries where MAPSS graduates have accepted offers.
