Employers and graduate schools know that a Whittier education goes well beyond career prep - it specializes in life prep. Whittier students spend four years building expertise, developing independence, and combining them to define their own opinions.
By the time they leave Whittier, graduates hold a valuable skill set and interdisciplinary knowledge that allows them to succeed in their planned career path or seamlessly transition into careers they may not have previously considered.
Whittier graduates are respected scholars, leaders, diplomats and entrepreneurs. They have earned Rhodes Scholarships, Thomas R. Pickering Foreign Affairs Fellowships, and several have become Fulbright awardees. Among Whittier's most notable alumni are Mozilla Chief Marketing Officer Jascha Kaykas-Wolff (Psychology), U.S. Foreign Affairs Officer Erin Clancy (Political Science), and Fitness Entrepreneur and Blogilates CEO Cassey Ho (Biology).
