Express yourself

Think critically, read analytically and communicate effectively in writing and speech

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.

First-year composition courses

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.

Undergraduate advising

Our academic advisors work with new and continuing students, transfer students and prospective students to help them achieve academic success and make progress toward their goals. Whatever your needs — we’re here to help!
