I'm currently an undergraduate double major in Theatre and English, and I know neither of these avenues alone are exactly rolling in job opportunities. The most sensible thing to do would be to go to grad school for Education and teach and direct at a high school right?
Well, what if that doesn't strike my fancy as much as I thought it did at first?
What kind of job opportunities does an MA in English open up, or are there really any at all? Perhaps I'm being selfish and I only want to study what I like without sacrificing some for practicality, but does anyone here know what you can do with an MA in English besides teach or write a book about linguistics in 19th century English literature?
Also, regarding Ivy League admissions, does anyone know which schools care less about foreign language proficiency, or do they generally all want a reading knowledge of at least 1 foreign language? If you have a strong GPA, GRE, and writing sample can you skate by without it?
