Overview

Even when additional qualifications are needed, as in law, an undergraduate major in English is often a distinct advantage. 

Career Opportunities

Students who major in English may be inclined to pursue graduate degrees in English and eventually find careers in academia as researchers or instructors.  Others may prefer to find work outside of academia, either directly after graduation or after obtaining a professional degree. 

Undergraduate study in English is well suited for students planning on attending professional programs in law, public administration, social work, or business; or for students planning to enter any field of work that makes use of people skills, the ability to digest new information, and the ability to read and write analytically.
