Whether they are drawn to the traditional, like philosophy or sociology, or emerging fields like sonic arts or biomedical engineering, the baccalaureate graduates go on to graduate programs at Stanford, Columbia or MIT – or they stay right there in one of the 50 master’s programs or the doctoral programs in engineering, the laboratory sciences, and psychology.
