Rachel’s Answer

Hi Lee, although it is advisable, you do not need to have a set goal in mind. English literature can lead to some very satisfactory careers. Such careers include teacher, professor, writer, journalist (although a major in journalism is advised), etc. In addition, a major in History can lead to politics, teaching, law, etc.

Majors are important in deciding what career you will eventually end up in. It is very important to consider the end goal at graduation of your bachelors degree. Although your undergrad major is very important for your future career, it is not an end all be all. You can major in English and attend medical school. For example, my sister graduated UCLA with a degree in english literature and later received a masters in molecular biochemistry .She is now in her first year of medical school. So it can lead to a variety of careers.

Speak to an academic advisor in your college (whenever you begin) and make sure you do this your freshman year (or absolute latest...early sophomore year). They will be able to guide you with career paths.

Michelle’s Answer

Hi Lee! Have you considered being a teacher? With your compassion, communication skills, and curiosity in many subjects, going into education may be a great fit! If you're interested, you should look into teacher certification in the area you want to teach. In some countries, you can do a short course to gain a teaching license without needing a degree in education.

Melissa’s Answer

Hi Lee, You sound like a great person and a wonderful candidate for social work! I was an English major in college and while most of the people in my MSW program came from psych and sociology backgrounds, English majors bring so many important skills to the game: writing, critical thinking, holistic thinking, keen understanding of humanity and relationships. Best of luck in your career, whatever you choose!
