The common idea that a PhD leads to a life in academia has never been completely true. And these days, it applies to just over half of recent doctorates from Yale’s Graduate School, according to a survey of alumni who got their PhDs from 2013 to 2023. The employers of 88.8 percent of alums were identified. (About 1 percent were in jobs other than those classified here.)
