PhD Careers & Alumni

Meet some of Fisher's PhD Alumni

Advising and Mentoring Activities

Faculty members spend many hours advising and counseling students regarding their programs of study and dissertations. They counsel about teaching and involve students in their research projects.

Each Fisher PhD student has a faculty advisor through his/her program of study. Some departments also have committees that oversee each PhD student's progress. For more than a decade the college has mandated an annual review for each PhD student. Students receive formal feedback on their progress in the program and have the opportunity to respond to the report and the program.

Career Opportunities

In addition to Fisher faculty consultation, Ohio State's Graduate School operates a career placement and counseling service for all doctoral students on campus. The overwhelming majority of our graduating students - almost 100 percent - accept academic positions nationally or internationally.
