LVC English majors pursue a range of careers, including journalism, education, publishing, law, digital media, arts administration, theater, advertising, public relations, and technical writing.

(The WEBstaurant Store), IGI Global, Moving Targets, NBC10 WCAU, The Foundation for Enhancing Communities, The Hershey Company, and the United States Army.
In the past five years alone, English graduates have enrolled in post-baccalaureate programs at Cornell University, McGill University (Canada), New York Film Academy, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Boston University, Lehigh University, Emerson College, University of Denver, University of Maryland, and University of Buffalo, among others.
