What can I do with a B.A. in English?

Just about anything! English students go on to find careers in teaching, in editing and publishing, in government, law, journalism, library and information management, and many other fields. With a B.A. in hand, some students find rewarding careers; others go on to further professional training. Their career paths can be fairly straightforward, or they can take unexpected turns. For a sampling of some of the possibilities, take a look at the students’ stories included here.

You can follow the links below to read more, or you can find a selection of stories on the Career Paths bulletin board on the fifth floor of Seton.
