Life After Ursinus

The Education department believes that the love of learning is sufficient reason to study any subject matter. At the same time, we appreciate that many of our students wonder how what they study might be applicable to future employment.

We believe that the liberal education our students receive at Ursinus, regardless of their major, provides them with the general skills that will help them excel in any activity—nuanced reasoning, clear writing, cogent argumentation, and experience encountering multiple competing views on important questions. Students in our educational studies programs develop these capacities as well, and, additionally, knowledge about education and schools that are germane to various careers. Some of those are listed below.
