Graduate and Professional School Placement


The Wilkes Honors College opened in 1999 and graduated its first full class in 2003. Of our over 565 alumni so far, 65% enter graduate school. Honors College students have gone on for graduate work at places such as the University of Chicago, Yale, Cal Tech, Georgetown, and MIT. In addition, about 20% of our alumni enter a graduate program at FAU, in some cases taking advantage of accelerated degree programs. When in graduate school, our alumni tell us that they are very well prepared for its rigors. Other Honors College graduates are working in business, education, the health industry, and government. Below are some of the graduate programs to which Honors College alumni have been admitted.
