Our Graduates

Lauren Pate And Dejorie Monroe

Recent graduates of Africana Studies at Notre Dame have gone on to top law school, medical school, and other graduate school programs around the globe. 

While many of our students elect to pursue post-graduate studies, others commit to a year of service or go straight into the workforce. Africana Studies alumni are employed in a variety of sectors of our economy including: government service, human resources, education, public policy, marketing, sales, scientific research, health care, and consulting. 

Our graduates often comment after they are out in the workforce that their association with Africana Studies is what "set them apart" from others in their career and graduate school searches.  

Take some time to check out some specific trajectories our grads have taken over the past few years on our Alumni page, including two recent Africana Studies majors, Emmie Mediate and Alex Coccia, both of whom were named Rhodes Scholars.

If you are a graduate of our program, please let us know what you are doing now. We would love to hear from you.
