Between 2014 and 2017, 2376 geoscience graduates took AGI’s Geoscience Student Exit Survey--1764 bachelor’s graduates, 378 master’s graduates, and 234 doctoral graduates. In September 2017, AGI’s Workforce Program followed up with these Exit Survey participants to ask them about their career path as early-career geoscientists.
