English Major Graduate School and Career Resources: Home

Libguide Description

“Destiny is a name often given in retrospect to choices that had dramatic consequences.” J.K. Rowling


If you’re in an English major, everyone around you may act as if your destiny--your only possible fate--is to teach with your degree. Teaching is great! We need great teachers. However, a degree in English offers much more flexibility than that and plenty of choices. This Libguide contains resources for you to investigate graduate school, law school, and career options with your degree in English. Please explore and get in touch with me directly if you have questions or need any help.
