Careers / Grad Schools



Messiah graduates are in demand.

Where will your Messiah education take you?

One measure of the value of your college education is how well it will translate into a job or graduate school opportunity.

Our students are in demand in both areas.

Messiah alumni attend top-tier graduate and professional schools to become entrepreneurs, researchers, lawyers, professors, health care providers and media shapers. Our alumni fill leadership roles in their places of employment, churches and communities. Regional and national employers seek out Messiah graduates for their academic preparation, work ethic and personal character.

We'll help you launch your career.

From your first year to senior year, our Career Center supports your career planning. We help you determine your strengths, select a major, weigh your vocational options, research graduate schools or gather information on employers.

Career and Graduate School Expo and other career fairs—we bring potential employers to campus to provide networking and job placement opportunities.
