STUDENTS' POSTGRADUATE HISTORIES
 

Many of our students go on to preprofessional graduate programs in medicine and allied health care fields. Some go to graduate school in biology, and others become teachers. We are in the process of gathering information from our graduates about their history after receiving a BA or BBA from Baruch College.
