PhD Placements

Typically, a few students pursue their MSF in order to launch their career in academia. Some students choose to attend a PhD immediately after attending Villanova, while others join the workforce prior to returning to school. Over the past two years, our alumni have enrolled in PhD programs at Rowan University, Drexel University and the University of Georgia. For students who wish to continue on in a PhD program, the Villanova MSF Fellowship is an excellent opportunity to gain valuable research experience.
