What can I do with an English degree?

You may love reading and writing, but you may also be asking, "What can I do with an English degree?"

When you earn an English degree from DePauw, you prepare yourself for countless career opportunities. Our majors pursue post-graduate education in many fields, including law, literature, creative writing, education, and library science, and they also enter business and communication-related jobs right out of college. Our English alums work in fields as far-reaching as geology, computer science, and film-making. At the center of our curriculum are skills that all employers are looking for: excellent written and spoken communication, creativity and problem-solving, and rigorous critical thinking.                                                                             

Take a look below to see what some of our graduates are doing with their degrees.
