About English Majors

A few of us actually become teachers, a worthy goal, but only one among many directions in which English graduates go to make a living. ULM graduates with both a Bachelor's and a Master's degree often go on to graduate school or teaching, but eventually 70% of all English majors make their way into more worldly occupations.

See, that's the thing about English: If you have a degree in English, you can do just about anything because you've been trained to read, produce, and evaluate all kinds of documents from Volkswagen maintenance manuals to scientific treatises, from legal briefs to sermons, from John Donne's poetry to TV scripts.
