Alumni Jobs

In April 2003, the English department updated our review of the careers of all our majors who have graduated since 1958--2694 people. English has been a strong major for at least the last 50 years; about 12% of all alumni from the college hold an English degree. We are impressed by the wide range of productive work undertaken by majors. Most of our alumni are "word workers" in occupations from attorney and teacher to writer and psychiatrist. The
tangible evidence of our alumni's working lives proves that there's literally nothing Dickinson English majors can't go on to do, and do well.
