Ethics & Legal Studies Doctoral Program Career Placement

The Ethics & Legal Studies Doctoral Program offers comprehensive guidance and support to its Ph.D. students when they seek academic employment. The Program’s Faculty Coordinator holds informational meetings for job candidates, offers detailed advice about their application materials, and oversees the assembly of their dossiers. The Program also schedules practice job talks for students on the job market.  The Program provides placement support to its Ph.D. students until such time as they receive an offer of continuing academic employment (a tenure-track position or equivalent).

Our tenure track position placement results since the inception of the program in 2004 are favorable.  Placements for Ph.D. recipients are listed below.
