English majors learn to acquire and synthesize information and to present their ideas and opinions skillfully. They find employment in fields in which the sophisticated use of language is necessary for achievement and advancement. Many graduates go on to postgraduate study, not only in writing, film studies and literature, but to schools of medicine, law, education, journalism and business.
