Consider an English Major
Do you love to read novels and poetry, but think you ought to do something more practical in college? Do you find satisfaction in creative writing, but know that you don't want to be a "starving artist"? You can still major or minor in English.
Those who have majored or minored in humanities studies such as English are increasingly valued in a wide variety of careers. The professional and business worlds have found that humanities majors are often better at solving problems and adapting to new directions than are their more narrowly educated, technically trained co-workers.
The writing and communication skills that are developed and enhanced by an English major or minor are valuable assets. Today, professionals in all fields need to know how to think critically and to speak and write clearly and effectively.
