The English major prepares students for a wide array of career opportunities. Many English majors enter the workplace immediately after graduation, working in business, publications, industry, public service, government, teaching, or the communication field. Their strong communication and analytical skills consequently make them adaptable to a variety of careers where such skills are essential, enabling them to move into management and leadership positions. Other students go on to advanced study: an English major is excellent preparation for continued graduate or professional training in areas such as English, law, political science/government, public administration, psychology, counseling, communications, and religious studies.
