Career Diversity at UIC English

Together with the Modern Language Association, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the American Historical Association, and many of our colleagues across disciplines, we recognize the value of humanities PhD training within and beyond the academy. In addition to working as faculty, our graduates have found fulfilling careers in roles in a variety of fields and industries, including research libraries, publishing, journalism, and K-12 education.

If you are wondering where to start looking for non-faculty jobs, we recommend Imagine PhD’s General Resources and Job Families pages.
