What can you do with an English degree? Everything.

With a degree in English from ASU, you can do anything. Students in our diverse degree program learn how to express themselves through traditional channels — literature analysis, rhetoric, linguistics, education, composition and creative writing — while studying contemporary themes, including environmental concerns, medical writing, human rights philosophies, digital narratives and computation. An English degree is applicable to just about any career and is a great springboard into graduate school, law school, medical humanities and more.


Internships

See the value of an English degree beyond the typical fields of teaching and tutoring. Internships are a great way for students to get an idea of what type of work they’d like to do after graduation and to gain valuable real-world work experience that looks outstanding on a resume.

Need to take a writing course? Fulfill your composition requirement in one of our small in-person, online or hybrid classes where you’ll get individual attention and feedback for growing your critical reading, thinking and writing skills.
