Given the rigorous yet supportive nature of the Honors community at Westminster, graduates of the Honors College are successful in a wide variety of post-collegiate careers. Many of our students attend graduate school, law school, and medical school, while others pursue careers in a wide range of interesting fields.
Students in recent classes have secured jobs with the National Park Service as an educational park ranger, the Los Alamos National Lab as a researcher, Goldman Sachs as an analyst, as a teacher of English in Egypt, as a lab technician at the University of Utah Medical School, and as a scientist at Biogen, to name just a few. Numerous students have pursued service or fellowship opportunities, such as working with children through AmeriCorps, teaching English in Turkey as a Fulbright Scholar, studying Global Justice in graduate school in the UK with the support of a Marshall Scholarship, or participating in the Teach for America program.
In all these cases, students apply their learning from Honors—especially critical thinking skills, aptitude for making connections across disciplines, and communication abilities—to excel in complex and challenging environments. Most importantly, these alums are life-long learners equipped to adapt to the ever-changing landscape of life in the 21st century.
