Alumni & Careers

Many of our students go on to teach in public and private schools and businesses. Some continue on to graduate school to earn teacher licensure, continue in some area of education (for example: special education, or counseling & school psychology ) or to learn more about their other major. Some go to law school. Some become teachers for programs such as  Teach for America. Preparing oneself in education at Denison does not limit one to just one sort of job or career. Our graduates report to us that they have found their education background useful in whatever career they choose.
