Catherine Hackney

"English majors do not only have to become professors and writers. I have held positions where I worked with grant writing, television commercials, magazine publishing, healthcare, big corporations, smaller nonprofits. There is a whole world full of interesting careers to consider for which an English major is ideal. My ability to enter a new environment and learn new skills is really the best asset I have, not just at my job, but for life in general. So many doors are open to me that I can choose and change my path as I desire.”

~ Catherine Hackney, BA English: Literature

"The warmth of the material, the talent of the department, and the challenge of studying English literature was the perfect scenario for me. I can say I am proud to be a CSU Ram, especially one who has a diploma from the Department of English. My time in the CSU English department was one of the happiest times in my life.”

~ Caleb Harrison, BA English: Literature

"Literature and storytelling are things that I've always loved. At CSU, I've been able to develop that passion and dive into the literature and stories that have shaped the world as we know it. I get to fight dragons while reading Beowulf, or I can journey through the vast American wilderness with my companion Hawkeye. No matter what we're doing, or what we're reading, it's always an adventure here at Colorado State!”
