You may have already looked at the variety of programs that our department offers in Creative Writing, Professional Writing, Language and Literature, and Literary, Film, and Cultural Studies. But what can you do with your English degree?
On this page you can read more about what skills you will develop and gain insight as to what your career path my look like-as a writer, web or digital content developer, communication specialist, editor, lawyer, business or non-profit management professional, graduate student, or teacher. More importantly you can also hear stories told by our alumni.
The English Department is complete with energetic faculty whose passion for writing and literature is contagious. Small class sizes mean you'll have a powerful educational experience and be able to connect with your professors. You will get thoughtful and attentive feedback on your writing and other projects while learning strategies to make them compelling and effective. You will gain confidence in organizing, articulating, and sharing your ideas with others in a dynamic and supportive community. We offer our students opportunities to travel abroad to Italy, Canada, and Trinidad; our students work on several publications, learning to select manuscripts, edit, and design them. They also contribute their own work to some. And we give our students clear, honest, and helpful advice about navigating their chosen fields of study.
