Employers place considerable value on the ability to communicate effectively and to solve problems. Perhaps the most valuable benefit from a degree in English is the versatility it provides for future career paths. Graduates can find employment in such exciting career fields as business, law, public relations, advertising, journalism, education, writing and publishing. Graduates of our program have developed rewarding careers in business, education, law, public relations, advertising, journalism, library-information services, government service, writing and publishing, philanthropy, and even medicine and medical research. CSS English majors have also gone on to pursue graduate study in a variety of disciplines at distinguished institutions across the country and in the United Kingdom.
