Current employment trends indicate that students graduating from college in the next few years and beyond will face an ever changing workplace - they will change careers at least five times over their working lifetime. Grounded upon transferable critical skills, a bachelor's degree in English from Hilbert is one of the most versatile of college degrees and a great foundation for many careers, such as teaching, technical writing, library science, advertising, journalism, or public relations. It can also inspire your creative side with opportunities in creative writing, film or theater. It's also excellent preparation for graduate studies in English, law, counseling, education, or business.

Through personal attention and a flexible but diverse set of concentrations, Hilbert's distinguished faculty will guide and nurture your aspirations. The effectiveness of our curriculum and advisement is proven by the success of our students who go on to graduate school at a rate that's more than double the national average. Hilbert's English program also allows you to jump-start your graduate-level studies in education/teacher certification through articulation agreements with some local graduate programs.
