Graduate and Professional Programs

Graduate and Professional School for English Majors

The English major provides excellent preparation for a wide range of graduate programs, including these that students have pursued in recent years:

  • Library Science
  • Seminary
  • International Service
  • Journalism
  • Students intending to study English in preparation for college teaching should consult with department faculty.  Students may wish to take an additional seminar or one or two additional period courses in American or British literature or English 314. They should also consider a four-credit senior project with an emphasis on criticism and theory.  The faculty hosts occasional grad school chats—look for the announcements on the Upcoming Events page.  (In fall 2011, students and faculty gathered on October 20 and shared treats and conversation about graduate and professional school possibilities.)
