This program examines the functions of literature and literary studies in constructing ethnicity and culture, examining topics such as post-colonial literature, U.S. and British minority literatures, and emerging world literatures, through the lenses of literary and cultural theory. Career paths: A degree in English opens the door to a broad range of career possibilities. Job opportunities exist in book and magazine publishing, journalism, technical writing, computer documentation, corporate communications, advertising, teaching, and public relations. Because English majors learn to speak and write clearly, as well as to analyze textual problems and create effective arguments, their skills are also valued by employers in virtually every aspect of business, including sales, marketing, human resources, and finance. Many English majors from the University go on to pursue advanced degrees in law, business, library science, journalism, literature, and medicine.
