Connections and Opportunities

One of the many important aspects of the IA program is the invaluable connection to its alumni. Successful alumni provide future generations of students with knowledge, expertise and inspiration. Since 1985, more than 900 students have completed the IA Dual Major, and now you, our alumni, live and work in many U.S. states and in countries across the globe. Your success stories allow us to share the accomplishments of IA graduates in important fields including business, education, communications, politics, international relations, sports and science with current and prospective students. Please consider adding to this remarkable portfolio of alumni profiles by adding your success story.
