A degree in the liberal arts from Pomona College prepares students for post-collegiate lives that are rich and varied.  Accordingly, our approach to post-collegiate outcomes seeks to understand the multi-dimensional contributions students make throughout their lives:  From first-destinations to advanced degrees, from first jobs to long careers with unpredictable twists and turns, and including the many kinds of contributions (personal/ public, financial/non-financial, social, political, etc.) that reflect the bold thinking and creative passions nurtured during their time at Pomona.
