We’re happy to share with you that 64 Albert Baker Fund (ABF) recipients in the U.S. completed degree or certificate programs this year!
The ABF Class of 2013 includes 48 undergraduate students, 15 graduate students, and one student who earned a vocational certificate.
What will our students do with their degrees? Although a student’s major may not indicate a specific career path, this year’s graduates clearly have aspirations that include managing environmental resources, writing screenplays, acting, practicing law, planning cities and regions, teaching, creating art, and dancing.
Overall, our graduates specialized in 27 different fields of study.
What were the most popular majors of our recipients in the Class of 2013? Business, education, engineering, environmental studies, law, and music (from jazz studies to vocal performance).
The most unusual major we came across this year? One student earned a master’s degree from Brandeis University in computational linguistics, a discipline between linguistics and computer science which is concerned with the computational aspects of human language.
We’re proud of the diverse interests and expertise of our students—from the creative to the technical, and from the traditional to the non-traditional.
This year’s graduates matriculated from 33 colleges and universities scattered throughout the United States.
