English majors graduate from our program with a wide range of marketable skills. They work in education, in business, in entertainment, and in the non-profit sector.
West Michigan has a long history of resettling refugees from around the world, and students in two Grand Valley courses are helping to teach them how to speak English.
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.
