Majors and Programs

College of Liberal Arts and Sciences: Education: English

Reading and writing are two very important activities in all education, which is why there are so many opportunities for students who study English. Discover, explore, and experiment with language and literature. A major from the Department of English at Iowa State University also provides an excellent foundation for professional study in business, law, theology, or medicine as well as related communication graduate programs. English majors become copywriters, corporate analysts, editors, grant writers, human resource managers, journalists, lawyers, librarians, program managers, publishers, researchers, teachers, technical communicators, Web designers, and writers. As an English major, you will have access to internationally recognized faculty with diverse areas of expertise, and you will choose one of three areas of emphasis: literature, secondary education, or rhetoric and professional communication.
