What to do with an English degree?
A degree in English provides students with skills that are sought after by a wide range of employers in the public, private, and non-profit sectors. Many students benefit from pursuing their passion for writing and literature during their degree and then translating the practical skills attained at university into other fields. That said, a degree in the liberal arts is not job training in itself; those who achieve the greatest success after pursuing literary studies take care to craft their careers and hone their skills throughout all of their courses, extra-curricular activities, voluntary contributions, and paid work.
The rigorous demands of Brock's English department ensure that our students develop a slate of skills that are always in demand:
