PhD Career Pathways at Stony Brook University

CGS PhD Career Pathways logoStony Brook joins a national effort to understand the career pathways of our PhD recipients and ensure that our graduate training continues to prepare our students to become the innovators and explorers of tomorrow. Led by the Council of Graduate Schools, with support from  The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the National Science Foundation, the PhD Career Pathways study examines the career aspirations and outcomes of our PhD students and alumni with the goal of continual program improvement. Stony Brook is part of a consortium of SUNY's four University Centers all committed to this effort with support from SUNY's new Chancellor.

Data Collection

Surveys will be administered annually to current second and fifth year PhD students and to alumni PhD recipients who graduated 3, 8, and 15 years previously. These anonymized, aggregated data will inform curricular improvements in Stony Brook's graduate programs, as well as a national effort to understand trends in the PhD workforce.
