You want to find a career in such fields as publishing, business, industry, government, and teaching. English majors often go on to postgraduate study not only in English but in such areas as law, business, education, and other liberal disciplines.

Whether English majors eventually become writers, editors, governors, astronauts, educators, lawyers, journalists, or any of the hundreds of other occupations to which English majors are drawn, these students tend to be self-motivating, independent thinkers with a deep interest in life and a strong desire to understand themselves and their role in the world.
