|Behind almost every would-be English major is a parent asking somewhat impatiently, "What good is an English Major?" An education in literary studies is all well and good, they may admit, but they can't imagine what kind of career path would follow a B.A. in English.
Graduates of OU's English program can be found working in fields all across the career spectrum. While there are many who have fulfilling careers teaching English in high school and colleges, other English majors have found work in advertising, screenwriting, Fortune 500 corporations, small businesses, foundations, and non-profit organizations.
