According to The College Major’s Handbook, 73% of English majors nationwide go into business or public service, with another 27% becoming educators—most teaching high school, and a few very determined students going on to teach English in college. What this means is that eventually each individual English major has to figure out what direction to take in the study of the discipline. As an English major at Bradley, you will have many options to choose from as you find out which kind of English major you want to be.
