Study What You Love and Prepare
for a Great Career
Employers need English majors more than ever. Jobs in teaching and professional writing continue to attract those who read perceptively, write cogently, and think critically. Our alumni apply those same qualities as successful attorneys, human resource directors, entrepreneurs, small-business owners, book editors and authors, copy editors and publication managers, public relations specialists, and counselors, to name a few.
You might be surprised to know that a BA in English can be your ticket to medical schools or business administration programs, where the ability to see situations from the perspectives of others, strong communications skills, and the ability to work with a team are essential. These are all skills that English majors develop while earning a degree.
