Students majoring in English may choose to go to law school, graduate school in English, or to pursue a career in which strong analytical and verbal skills are prized.
The department encourages students to supplement English courses with selected communication courses and courses from other departments.
In selecting courses, students receive careful, individual attention through the department's four-year Career Development Program, in which students work extensively with the department faculty.
