How an English Degree Can Make You a Desirable Hire

Everyone knows English majors can't get jobs. Except the employers who hire them. College kids - and their parents - think a humanities degree is useless. But businesses want students who can write and think critically.

Our Mission

The English Department strengthens the liberal education of students by developing a deepened understanding of language and literacy, the value of critical reading and effective writing, and the richness of literature, past and present.
