Whatever profession you enter, an English - Literature degree at Eastern University will provide you with not only the practical skills of communication, but also the imagination and vision that it takes for you to succeed and to empower others. 


The English - Literature program offered by Eastern University, one can easily pursue any career (including occupations in nursing, law, web design, activism, teaching or publishing) because the ability to interpret the complexity of human behavior and to interact with care and intelligence are necessary skills in our contemporary world. 

Because students become fluent with the multiple social, political, and religious perspectives offered by Multi-Ethnic, International, American, and European writing, they are able to appreciate and work with a diversity of individuals. In addition, the world is increasingly requiring teamwork, and thus the ability to take actions, listen carefully and speak intelligently are essential skills that students are trained to master in our department.`
