Careers and Internships
While a major or minor in English, Journalism, French, or Spanish provides personal enrichment and a solid grounding in the liberal arts, many students want to know: how can I find a fulfilling job after graduation?
Many careers are open to students who major or minor in English, who study languages, and who specialize in professional preparation in areas such as journalism.
One crucial key to successful preparation for a career is an internship. English Education majors complete student teaching assignments. Shepherd's unique Washington Semester program offers students in our department an unparalleled opportunity to gain first-hand experience with top organizations.
