A world of career possibilities

An English Language degree can lay the foundation for a rewarding career in any number of fields or industries. Depending upon the career you choose, you may need to earn a specific level of degree. Most teaching jobs, for example, require at least a bachelor's or master's degree.

Satisfy your word nerd wanderlust and teach English in a foreign country, or combine your education with other foreign language skills and become an interpreter. Write for a newspaper or magazine, or teach an adult how to read. Other career options may include:

  • Primary, elementary, or secondary school teacher
  • Copywriter
  • Editor
  • Interpreter or Translator (must have knowledge of at least one other language)

As you can see, this diverse course of study can be a terrific base for an equally diverse career.
