English is often thought of as the teaching major, and it is true that many majors go on to teach in junior or senior high school or in college; however, there are also career opportunities available in journalism, publishing, editing, library science, and technical writing. In addition, business and law schools, medical and dental schools and a variety of humanities programs appreciate students with degrees in English. English graduates also often gravitate toward administration. PUC’s president and three vice presidents have undergraduate or graduate degrees in English.
Communications and journalism:
Librarian: (with additional library training) – $47,000
There are also many other opportunities in journalism, media, administration, research development, customer service, consulting, and marketing indirectly related to the English major. English majors going into academic administration, research, law, business, or medicine should check those fields for income levels.
Many of PUC's alumni are high school and college teachers while others have entered a wide range of professions. There are numerous lawyers, college administrators, business people, researchers, librarians, published authors, computer specialists, physicians, dentists, physical therapists, journalists, public relations and development officers.
