Plans for After Graduation

Michael O'Shea

"Endowed with some fundamental skills—critical thinking, writing, and speaking experience—that carry across any number of fields, liberal arts graduates can change jobs relatively fluidly in today’s unsettled labor market." 
—Michael O'Shea, '11
Education USA Officer at the Fullbright Commission and U.S. Embassy in Ottawa, Canada
