R'7--79_!V:',!R'#!2!0+!=&,:!'!`C"C!&#!D#;(&9:a! ! English majors develop superior reading, writing, and analytical skills that lead to success in multiple fields. Past English majors have opted for a variety of careers in government, business, research, education and publishing, as well as in the cultural, entertainment, and communications industries. Majoring in English prepares students to succeed within many, many career-paths, but it also allows for flexibility in moving from one career to another. This is because an English major’s skill set is highly transferrable from one industry to another. In addition to your degree, consider an internship in a field of interest, and be sure to interview someone in that field so you know what is expected of you.
