Internships & Careers

Skills you build as an English major 

Writing and communication are the most often used in the work place. Analytical skills were also used quite often and in a variety of ways. The study of literature, although necessary for teaching and research, has given many students greater insights while pursuing other careers and a better understanding of the world in general.
