Never Sets on
The World Awaits...

What can English majors do with their degrees? The answers may surprise you. How does Supreme Court Justice sound? Or maybe an executive at a Fortune 250 company?
These positions have been filled by people with an undergraduate degree in the Arts, but you couldnít tell by their titles. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens holds an English Literature degree.
An undergraduate degree in English opens the door for many advanced degree opportunities. Like Justice Stevens, some go on to law school, and of course many English majors go on to become professors at colleges and universities. Astonishingly, English majors average better on medical, law, and business school admission tests than do pre-med or business majors.
An English degree doesnít just expand your liberal studies of literature, writing, and film. Itís a ticket to success in any field you choose.
