A degree from ҹav is versatile and transferable—and so are the skills you’ll develop through classes, research, experiential learning, and internships. In a world defined by constant social and technological change, employers need graduates who possess communication skills, an ability to problem solve, adapt, and draw on a wide range of knowledge and experience.

Strategic Communications, RCMP of New Brunswick
Studied: Criminology and Criminal Justice, Psychology

“ҹav provided me with some of the best times of my life. The professors are exceptional, the people are friendly, and the opportunities are unlike those at other universities.

Emilia Gutierrez, BA '21

Reporter with CBC New Brunswick
Studied: Journalism and Communications and Public Policy

Social Worker
Studied: Psychology and Gerontology

"There truly isn’t anything in life I would recommend more than ҹav. From the beautiful campus to the academics and the many fantastic people you will meet along the way; ҹav is the place to be. I found who I was, and I am positive you will find who you are too."



Abbie LeBlanc, BA '19
PhD Candidate at Harvard
Studied: Great Books, Political Science, and Human Rights 

“ҹav wasn’t just incidentally the place where I developed an understanding of what kind of career and life I wanted. The people and community at ҹav made this possible. In all my departments, I got to know my professors individually. I also often knew most of the people in my major, and discussions started in class would continue around campus. After graduation, I completed an MA at McGill before starting my PhD at Harvard. While these bigger institutions have their own virtues, I wouldn’t have felt prepared to navigate them without the sense of self and of community I developed at ҹav.”



Nahomi Lopez, BA ‘18
International Digital Marketing
Studied: Communications and Public Policy

“There are so many things about a liberal arts education that have become key and defining skills of the professional I am today. A strong sense of social responsibility, adaptability, analytical skills, problem-solving, and creativity are skills I’ve been praised for and I have ҹav to thank for them.”

Samantha Squires, BA '18
Senior Associate with PwC's Economic and Policy Practice
Studied: Economics

“ҹav helped me get to where I am today because it set me apart. Because I am from Ontario and chose to return after university, when I was applying to both my master's program and jobs, I was competing with students from well-known universities with 20,000-60,000 students. Among piles of applications and resumes, I was likely the only one from ҹav. Leaning into the differences of attending a small and unique liberal arts institution will help you and being a part of such an exclusive alumni association will make it easier to connect to other alumni in the future.” 



Whitney Beals, BA '18
Studied: Great Books, English, and History

“The education I received at ҹav prepared me for my career not only insofar as it trained me to understand complex texts and helped cultivate my understanding of English, but it allowed me to explore my own values, motives, and hopes. I was encouraged to think critically, to challenge my own and others’ perspectives—but also seek to understand and appreciate the truth within an opinion I may not wholeheartedly agree with.”



Catherine Lansley, BA ‘18
Research Analyst at Global Public Affairs
Studied: Human Rights and Communications and Public Policy

“ҹav provided a safe environment for me to explore my interests and passions and engage with professors and like-minded peers. It gave me the uniquely small university opportunity to get involved in all facets of campus life and build relationships through internships and experiential learning opportunities. ҹav taught me the hard skills I use every day, from considering a wide variety of perspectives to defending an argument to drafting a research report.”

Sam Titus, BA '17
Working in Canada-US Relations for Global Affairs Canada
Studied: History

“After graduation I pursued a master’s degree—a challenge for which I felt fully equipped for thanks to my time at ҹav. I now work at Global Affairs Canada, where I bring up St. Thomas as often and with as many people as I can. Years later, I continue to apply the lessons I learned at ҹav. It truly provided the foundation for all my future successes.” 




Book Sadprasid, BA ‘17

Oscar Baker, BA ‘16
Indigenous Affairs Reporter at the Cape Breton Post
Studied: Journalism and Communications

“My courses at ҹav taught me the value of great writing. The field is changing rapidly and new digital skills are expected, but the foundation of any journalist should be the ability to tell an accurate story, and writing is at its core.”

“You can use your time at ҹav to start building a foundation of what you want your life to look like. Join different clubs, get a minor in something completely different than your major. Meet people for coffee, take your professors up on opportunities. It’s your time to really try things out, to see what fits and what doesn’t. You’ll take what you learn at ҹav with you for the rest of your life. And what a life you’ll have.”
