AGI Exit Survey of Geoscience Graduates

published Apr 4, 2014 1:07pm
The American Geosciences Institute encourages your department to participate in AGI's Geoscience Student Exit Survey this spring. The survey not only benefits the entire geoscience community by improving our understanding of the latest crop of geoscience graduates, but can provide important feedback for your own department or program. This survey instrument was created to identify the initial pathways into the workforce for graduating students with their bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees, as well as assess their preparedness for entering the workforce upon graduation. We recently published the result of the prior round of the National Geoscience Student Exit Survey, which can be downloaded from

This survey is web-based and will have a set of standardized questions. We need each participating department to distribute a department-specific survey link to their graduating students. Departments will be able to customize the survey by adding questions that pertain to local interests. Each department will also receive the data for their graduating students after the survey has completed.

Please send an email to Carolyn Wilson ( to indicate your interest in participating and your ideal target date to send the survey to your graduating students.
