English & Communication
Welcome to the English and Communication Department

English is one of the strongest pre-professional majors because the skills, knowledge, and understanding acquired are an invaluable preparation for careers in education, law, business, medicine, and government service.


Students who major or minor in English find work in a variety of fields ranging from management to computer programming. Careers such as writing, teaching, library science, editing, and publishing are directly related to specific studies in English language and literature.


The communication skills developed in the study of English are also important to careers in public relations, business management, and personnel counseling.
