English Majors develop essential skills in research, analysis, writing, and multimedia communication and presentation. These skills make them valuable commodities in the 21st-century professional world. Here's a useful pie-chart showing recent English Major CAREER CHOICES:

The English Department's CAREER CONVERSATIONS are informal conversations between faculty and students - Majors, Minors, and anyone else - that highlight current careers that begin with English students in particular and Humanities studies in general. Each semester's "Conversations" build on one of the English Department's three majors - Literature, Creative Writing, or Professional Writing.
