"Now what?" is not a question Rocky Mountain College graduates struggle with - the the last five years, 99 percent of graduates find work or placement in graduate school within three months of graduation.
Most graduates find their RMC studies fill their pre-professional program needs. Biology and chemistry majors find ready acceptance as pre-med candidates due to a solid combination of course work, hands-on lab and research opportunities, internship experience, and preparation for the medical school application process. In fact, 88 percent of those who apply to medical school are accepted. Many of our graduates end up practicing medicine in Montana through the WWAMI program.
Our graduates also build careers in dentistry, optometry, and pharmacy. Many attend schools in our region, while others enroll in programs across the country, such as the University of Minnesota. Our English and history majors find they are prepared for law school or pursue rewarding careers in public service and politics. We have alumni at the Clinton Foundation and on the staff of U.S. Senators.
Like many students, physical education and health majors often find their undergraduate internships turn into full-time jobs upon graduation, while others continue their education in physical therapy or other disciplines at schools including Texas A&M and Eastern Washington University. Equestrian studies students take paths that either lead them to veterinary medicine or well-established facilities, such as the U.S. Dressage Federation. And with three master's programs - physician assistant, accountancy, and educational leadership - graduates land high-paying opportunities in high-demand fields.
