Language is a powerful tool. We use it everyday to communicate with each other, to express ourselves, to make sense of the world around us. Northwest University's English program can help you harness the power of the written and spoken word to develop skills that you will use for the rest of your life, no matter what your career path. You'll study literature, poetry, and drama from around the world, exploring different perspectives and worldviews while challenging your own.
A degree from NU can help launch your career immediately after graduation. A 2013 alumni survey indicated that 89% of NU graduates have a full-time job within six months of graduating. Here are some of the career paths you can take with a degree in English.
Professor & Chair of the English Department
"Majoring in English is the best choice you can make for your personal and career future. As more organizations seek people who can communicate clearly—both verbally and in writing—the number of places your English degree can take you will only grow. Because the English degree also teaches you to think, to reason, and to read, you are fully prepared with enviable skills to work in a competitive, global environment."English Department »
