Career perspectives

English graduates can find career opportunities with a range of employers because their skills, especially in written and spoken communication, are valuable in almost every sector.

Many enter careers in writing, teaching, marketing, sales, management and administration, and working in public, private and charity sector organisations.

Studying English at City will introduce you to a broad range of literatures alongside creative, professional and academic writing in a research-driven environment.
