Overview

Law schools, graduate programs, and nonprofit organizations especially value English majors for their highly-developed skills in critical thinking, writing, researching, and communication.

Springfield College English majors may choose a concentration in either creative writing or professional writing. They also often minor or double-major in a related field, and contribute to one of our campus publications, like the Alden Street Review, our literary journal; The Student, our weekly newspaper; or The Pride Sports Journal, our athletics magazine.

Careers and Internships

As an undergraduate English major, there will be plenty of opportunities for you to put your craft to good use through one of our many on-campus publications. 

Students who graduate from the English major will have their pick of career options, whether they’d like to enter into the field of education, professional writing, editing, publishing, the legal profession, or nonprofits.

Plus, you’ll be happy to know that a survey of our 2014-15 graduates showed that 100 percent of English majors who responded reported being employed or enrolled in graduate school within six months of graduation.
