American Studies Majors have chosen many different career paths. A significant number have attended law school, while a number have chosen doctoral programs in History, English, and other fields, and have pursued academic careers. Others have advanced degrees in such disparate fields as management, international affairs, urban planning, journalism, social work, biology, and medicine. Program alumni are variously employed in several different kinds of legal practice, business (from investment banking to market research), government, consulting, journalism, education, community planning, political activism, social work, and in the arts as creators, producers, and performers. Several have served in the Peace Corps or Teach for America.
