The English department has several resources for students. One unique program is the Writing Center. Through this program, undergraduates receive help from English graduate students. Graduate students help edit and assist with students' work. This resource benefits both the graduate and undergraduate students.
Baylor’s undergraduate scholarly publication, The Pulse, promotes academic writing among undergraduate students. Students with exceptional writing and research skills can have their work featured. This can be for their classes or for their Honors or University Scholars theses. The Pulse also provides opportunities for students to gain experience in the publication process.
Graduates often continue their studies in graduate or law school. They often find jobs in communications, public relations, public writing or teaching.
