English Careers

As language, reading, writing, and communication change and adapt to the features of an increasingly technologically based society, the importance of and demand for reading and writing skills increases. The University of Minnesota Crookston (UMC) is an applied learning campus, and as such, our English degree is created to meet the needs of an ever-growing career market. The B.S. in English at UMC combines both writing skills, to ensure a mastery of the applied skills vital to most employers, as well as the critical study of world literature, to strengthen one’s value of multiculturalism and creativity.
