The career possibilities open to Villanova English majors are endless. They become successful lawyers, editors, novelists, investment bankers, professors, magazine writers, teachers, and executives in advertising and public relations, among many other lucrative, rewarding and prestigious fields. Probably no other major leads to so many different job possibilities.
Villanova English majors bring valued skills to their careers—they develop ideas in an organized and persuasive way, read insightfully, and write clearly. These are the competencies employers and professional schools most desire. Employers can train people in the particular things needed for a particular job; they don’t want to try to teach people the things that Villanova English majors already know.
We also help our students obtain internships and other experiences outside the classroom so they are ready to walk into the world of work.
See the Careers for English Majors brochure, which includes profiles of eight recent graduates.
Career Services has a particular career counselor who specializes in helping Arts students, Sheila Doherty.
