This program provides students a broad background in British, American, and other Anglophone literature. Students begin the concentration with the gateway course, "Tools of Textual Analysis," which teaches essential approaches and methodologies for analyzing a variety of textual forms. Upon completion of these requirements, students may choose the courses which most appeal to them, enabling students to develop and pursue their own intellectual interests. 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.
