“English majors develop skill in writing and speaking – two critical skills for effective management. After completing a Master’s in English literature at UNC, I went on to various management positions. The skills of effective writing, analysis and critical thinking are absolutely essential when helping organizations raise funds or set a clear strategy.”

“The English professors with whom I studied taught me how to write, how to analyze a text, and how to think critically and arrange thoughts logically for my readers—skills which have been invaluable to me as an attorney. My English major prepared me for law school better than any discipline that I can imagine.”

“My time at UNC was invaluable to my growth as a student and an artist…As a PhD student at the University of Maryland and a novelist published by Flatiron Books, I’m so grateful for the literary foundation UNC has given me and the many friends I made in my time there.”

“I benefited so much from my years studying in and around Greenlaw Hall, encouraged by the incredible professors, the variety of unique programs for undergraduates (like the PIT Journal, or studying Shakespeare in London and Oxford), and the active literary scene around campus, especially in poetry. The experience was unforgettable, and not to mention the best possible preparation for the path I chose to follow of becoming an English professor.”
