Each year the Career Center conducts a Senior Survey of the graduating class to learn more about the career choices made by Villanova graduates. Specifically, we seek to identify the numbers of students who are employed, seeking employment and going to graduate school within six months of graduation. This survey also assists the Career Center in assessing the initial salary levels offered in various fields and in various cities. This information is helpful to the Career Center staff in counseling and advising students and alumni. The results of the survey provide valuable insight for faculty members, students and parents about the wide range of opportunities currently available to Villanova students.
Placement data for the graduating class was obtained through a Career Center survey of students who received Bachelor’s degrees between September and May. Each student was contacted at least three times between May and January. The average response rate is 85%. Students with more than one major are counted only in their primary major.
