What does a degree in English offer? Evidence shows that Humanities students succeed and even flourish in today's quick changing economies. In a competitive workforce, those with flexible writing and critical thinking skills are more likely to succeed. In our small, discussion-orientated classes, students develop skills in effective argument, organized thinking, creative problem-solving, collaboration, and communication. Students go on to apply these crucial skills in further study, and in a wide range of careers in writing, teaching, law, business, publishing, editing, communications, the media, etc.
