English Literature careers

Our English Literature graduates have gone into successful careers in:

  • banking
  • buying
  • IT
  • librarianship
  • marketing
  • publishing
  • teaching
  • university administration

Many also go on to further study, completing Master's degrees in English and postgraduate diplomas in areas like information management and law.

The School of Humanities works closely with the careers office and runs special careers events for its students. This includes our annual humanities careers conference, which all of our students are invited to attend

I have developed eloquence, confidence and analytical skills that will prove invaluable professionally.
