Career opportunities abound for those with a degree in English. Skills gained in this area of study can be easily applied to many career areas, as employers desire employees who can think clearly and critically, analyze and interpret data and communicate results.
If you desire to teach, the combination of an English major and professional education
minor will prepare you to pursue teaching licensure. Pair an English major with a
specialization in technical writing to prepare for careers in technical or professional
writing, which entails developing information related to software, electronics, equipment
and procedures. Technical writing is a great subject for students planning careers
that require writing, editing, creating web pages, translating or illustrating.
Majoring in a foreign language will prepare you for a global job market.
If you wish to teach, major in a foreign language and minor in professional education. Pair your study of foreign language with a major or minor in business to prepare to work abroad or for an international company.
You can expand your career opportunities by taking two years of foreign language and/or participating in a study abroad program. Foreign language requirements are included in our Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) programs, and international studies programs are available to all student.
