After Lewis & Clark

What do you do with an English major?

We’re proud to say that our graduates are a diverse group!

Some of our majors enter the teaching profession — often after completing a Masters or PhD.

Many are pursuing graduate school to work in social service agencies, arts management, library science, and law.

Others are finding satisfying careers in public relations and publishing.

Still others are working with the Peace Corps or even creating their own nonprofit organizations here and abroad.
