Undergraduate students in English develop the reading, writing, and analytical skills desired by most employers. As a result, the English B.A. degree is excellent preparation for a number of career opportunities. Many of our alumni have fulfilling careers in areas such as academics, public relations, library science, and publishing. And there are many more fields that desire the skill set and talent of our English majors.
We are proud to recognize English majors who have achieved success both inside and outside the classroom. Please visit the Career Preparation, Alumni News, and Student Achievements links (also left) to see for yourself what you can do with an English degree from Monmouth.
