Reading doesn't just entertain and inform — it also changes the way we think about the world. With a literature degree, you will acquire new cultural perspectives and improve your critical thinking skills in ways that will serve you in any career path you choose.

Career Outlook

What do Sting, Conan O'Brien, Barbara Walters, Steven Spielberg, and Michael Eisner have in common? They were all once English majors! According to Eisner, former CEO of Disney, "Literature is unbelievably helpful, because no matter what business you are in, you are dealing with interpersonal relationships. It gives you an appreciation of what makes people tick."

The diversity of the aforementioned people reflects the diversity of the literature you will experience while earning your liberal arts degree with a track in Literature.
