Career Paths

Building a career usually means choosing one field of specialization and building the skills and contacts that professionals use in that area. We are offering here a sampling of ideas about career paths available to those with degrees in English, with individual examples of people who have built a career in a particular field starting from an undergraduate degree in English or a related discipline.

Take a look at some of our alumni profiles under the many career path tabs that describe specific jobs our alumni do, how they were hired and learned to do their jobs, and their advice for you.
