Political and Social Thought is an excellent major for a variety of future activities-in many cases perhaps even better than a major within a single department. Many students graduating from this program pursue further study in graduate and professional schools, often gaining admission to the nation’s top programs. Members of recent classes, for example, have been accepted to law schools at Harvard, Yale, N.Y.U., and Virginia; and to Ph.D. programs at the same and similar institutions. Other students have gone on to careers in publishing, investment banking, community organizing, and positions in NGOs and advocacy groups like Amnesty International. In short, PST majors find themselves well-prepared for careers in a wider variety of fields.
Because of the intense and cohesive nature of the program over two years, study abroad during the school year cannot ordinarily be allowed.
