Why Major in English?
Students studying English acquire the skills needed to thrive in a technologically and culturally complex world. Students learn how to present their ideas persuasively and communicate effectively with others, conduct cultural and historical analysis, create literary works, and formulate well-reasoned conclusions. By studying language, students develop competency in the areas most valued by employers, including critical thinking, teamwork, and oral and written communication. Graduates frequently go on to successful careers in writing, editing, law, teaching, journalism, and advertising, among others.
