So I was a English Education major, but I wanted to get married, so I dropped the Education part and graduated a year early. My plan is to get my Masters in Education (and eventually my PhD, so I can teach at the university level). Well, my hubby got stationed in a place where there isn't a university close enough, and I don't like online colleges. So for the next four years, I have to find something else to do before I get my masters.
What can you do with a BA in English? Right now I'm doing classified subbing, but I am over-qualified and I'd really like to feel like I'm doing something associated with my degree. I graduated Summa Cum Laude for heavens sake, I ought to be able to do something with it all!

There is so much you can do with a degree in English. Check out this website- http://www.daltonstate.edu/ar/majors/html/english.htm. Also, in my state as long as you have a Bachelor's degree then you can be hired as a teacher. Once hired you have to have this agency come out and observe you teach so many times and you take a few classes held at the school. Once you complete it, you are then a certified teacher. I would check to see if there is anything like that in your area. You may also want to check on the jobs the Department of Defense has to offer on base. Good Luck!
