Alumni Survey Results
In 2013, the Program of Liberal Studies conducted a survey of its alumni/ae since the first graduating class in 1954. The department announced the online survey on several social media sites and in its annual alumni newsletter, and also solicited responses through its alumni e-mail database (roughly 1,650 names). A total of 676 alumni completed at least part of the survey, with 596 finishing the entire set of questions.
The survey covered three main topics: a retrospective evaluation of the program, postgraduate employment history, and postgraduate education. Reports on the first and third topics are available below; a report on employment history is currently in progress. (The variety of career paths taken by PLS graduates has made the latter a more challenging project.)
