"[T]he research skills that I learned from both the English major and PWTC have made every challenge a little less daunting. Thanks to the program, I know how to write for an audience—my job now is to find out what exactly that audience knows and more importantly, what they don’t know."
"Being an English major means knowing that my way of thinking and my way of understanding the world makes sense. I just love when I have the opportunity to be a language-loving nerd with other English majors … I’m grateful for the sense of community here within the English department."
"The idea that 'you can do anything with an English major' is absolutely true, so my piece of advice to underclassmen would be to make sure to explore your options! It's never too late (or too early) to adjust your sails and find awesome ways to use this great program to your advantage."
"The major highlight [of the internship] for me came from working with Amherst Media to launch their community-centric website, The Collective. … They let me contribute film reviews and episodes of my podcast, The Pick-Ups. Together, we craft and curate content for a growing audience that encourages writers, filmmakers, and other artists to engage with their community while promoting their work."
"I was sipping tea in a coffee shop in New York City with a cabin bag by my side and no place to stay the night when my phone beeped, notifying me of an email from Penguin Random House. I had received the opportunity to intern in the marketing department at the Knopf Doubleday imprint."
