The English major helps students develop as readers of complex, interesting, texts, including literary texts. Majors read writing from a variety of historical contexts and cultures; this experience builds their understanding of the relation between society and language.
English majors become critical and reflective readers, aware of the history and development of writing in English. They are also good, inventive writers, able to analyze problems, do careful and inventive research, and argue and evaluate the arguments of others.
The English major is good preparation for a career in writing or a variety of editing fields — stories, speeches, legal documents, advertising, research projects, poems, grant proposals, essays, or letters. English majors also find careers in publishing, journalism, public relations, business, industry, management, marketing, social services, and government. English is a strong pre-professional major for law, medicine, library science, or teaching.
