B.A. in English

Contrary to popular opinion, most students who major in English do not become public school teachers, although many do choose a career in teaching. Rather, English majors go into all areas of business and government and wherever else the ability to read and write the English language effectively leads to opportunities for advancement and success. The English major is a widely recognized and respected preparation for graduate degrees in law, medicine, social services, and business. It also provides an excellent foundation for free-lance and broadcast journalism. The academic backgrounds of management personnel in private and public organizations attest to how appropriate the English major is for those who pursue careers in management and administration.
