English – Transfer Program

Students who major or minor in English can find work in a variety of fields. Careers such as writing, teaching, library science, editing and publishing are directly related to specific studies in English language and literature. English is an excellent pre-law major. Many transfer institutions require that English majors have proficiency in a foreign language. The level of this proficiency varies – some require third-semester proficiency but more require fourth semester proficiency.
