What can you do with an English major? This course is designed to answer that question from a wide variety of perspectives. Topics include academic choices within the major, minor(s), undergraduate research opportunities, English-related student organizations, study abroad, internships, scholarships, career options and career planning, graduate and professional programs, and finding faculty mentors and sponsors.

Assignments will include online and in-class discussions, some reflective writing, attendance at English-related events, and a “prospective resume” in which you imagine what you will have done by the time you graduate. (Group 1)
