Success After Truman
Truman’s focus on educating the whole person through a well-rounded curriculum of the liberal arts and sciences instills the value of lifelong learning that leads to happy and fulfilling lives.
As students explore new ideas and engage in a wide range of perspectives, they attain a deeper understanding of the world and their place in it. In the process, they learn how they can pursue rewarding careers that allow them to connect their education and their passions to the needs of the world. And Truman's high placement rate following graduation shows that 90% of our most recent graduates are either employed or enrolled in graduate school.
Truman alumni are working at places such as:
- Caterpillar Inc.
- Johns Hopkins
- National Public Radio
- University of Missouri Health Care
Other recent graduates continued their education at institutions such as:
- American University
- Boston University
- California Institute of Technology
- Cornell University
- Duke University
- George Washington University
- Massachusetts Institute of Technology
- Stanford University
- University of Notre Dame
- University of Oxford
- Vanderbilt University
- Yale University
And that’s not all:
- Recent rankings place our graduates’ first-time pass rates on the CPA exam #4 nationally.
- 100 percent of our education majors have met every state exit standard by the time they graduate.
- Over the past 10 years, our students have been accepted into medical schools at a rate of 70 percent—20 percent higher than the national average—attending such institutions as Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Washington University, Creighton University, The University of Iowa, Medical College of Wisconsin, University of Kansas, Northwestern University, Georgetown, Boston University, A.T. Still University, and the University of Chicago.
"Even in a small department, the personal contact matters. In the fall of my freshman year, I went to a barbecue at a professor’s house, so I met students and professors personally early on. I also joined the Society of Physics Students, where I met older students who gave me good advice about my four-year plan."
