English Majors Look Back; Humane Classrooms; Thinking About Thinking

Peter G. Beidler, professor of English at Lehigh, was featured in The Chronicle's "Magazine & Journal Reader" section. In the winter issue of ADE Bulletin, Beidler was mentioned in a feature about what former English majors do. Beidler conducted a survey that covered students who graduated from 1980 to 2000 and found that the English major was good preparation for professional life, but not in the way he expected. His survey found that graduates were far more likely to go into law or business than to get advanced degrees in English or education.
