Careers & Internships

The English major prepares students to write and speak well, to think analytically and critically, and to solve problems quickly, all of which are required and sought after in today's 21st century job market. 

To help you decide where to direct your skills, we hold workshops, sponsor internships, and run a Careers seminar. 

My English degree from UMass Amherst has taken me to places I never thought was possible. It’s such an incredibly versatile discipline.  — Matt McNulty '10, Content Supervisor at Google
