Best Colleges for English

English majors must endure lame jokes from friends and family, all of which feature a punchline which, in essence, denigrates their future career/earning prospects. In reality, English majors’ mid-career salaries are parallel with those who selected presumably more lucrative areas of concentration, such as biology, business, and accounting. This is, in large part, because English majors sharpen particular skills that help them excel in any number of career paths including: writing, editing, analyzing, and public speaking. Many English majors also elect to teach at the secondary or collegiate levels. No matter your future direction, studying at one of our Best Colleges for English will give you the preparation needed for a successful career.
