McCay Co-Authors STEM Opinion Piece

NY6 Project Manager Deanna McCay is co-author of a recently published opinion piece, "Preparing Graduate Students for STEM Careers Outside Academia," which appears in the current online edition of Eos: Earth & Space Science News. The article notes that more than 50 percent of all doctoral degree holders in STEM fields do not work in academia or do research as their primary job. McCay and her co-authors recommend a number of strategies to prepare students for a broader range of career options, many of which are applicable to undergraduate students in STEM majors as well.
