Career Resources

English and writing majors pursue successful careers in communications, law, business, publishing, web design, editing, teaching, technical writing, public relations, management, advertising, medicine and nonprofit work. Our programs prepare students for any career that requires excellent written and oral communication skills, rhetorical sophistication and mastery in the critical analysis of information.

Studies have shown that a liberal arts degree not only trains students for their first job, but also gives them the skills and flexibility to get promoted, to move within a company or to embrace the new opportunities that our evolving economy creates.

Our students have excelled in earning admission to graduate programs in literature, writing and publishing; law schools; divinity schools; and medical schools. They have also earned prestigious post-graduate scholarships such as Fulbright awards.
