English majors are more than passionate readers. They become poets and playwrights, critics and editors, publishers and teachers. Most importantly, they are powerful critical thinkers. You'll apply critical thinking skills to everything from Chaucer and Shakespeare to The Hunger Games and The Handmaid’s Tale.
