If you love to curl up with a good book, then a pathway in English might be for you. But there’s a lot more to studying English than just reading novels, short stories, plays, and poetry by English-speaking writers. You might choose to focus on the literature of a certain time period, location, or author. Or, you might write on material from film, journalism, and TV. Students in English work as educators, writers, advertising managers, public relations specialists and just about any career that needs people who write well.
