Mostly Online Bachelor of Arts Degree
Literature in English majors at East Tennessee State University are prepared for a number of jobs that require strong communication and interpretative skills, including careers in law, medicine, publishing, editing, journalism, human resources, program management, marketing, reporting, creative and technical writing, education, public relations, social work, government service, the clergy, non-profit organizations, and financial services.
A command of the English language is one of the most important assets in any work environment, both domestically and globally. English majors direct multi-national corporations (Michael Eisner, Disney CEO), lead philanthropic organizations (Kathryn Fuller, Chair of the Ford Foundations and CEO of the World Wildlife Fund), take the bench of the Supreme Court (John Paul Stephens and Clarence Thomas), go into space (Sally Ride, astronaut), and assume important government administrative responsibilities (Carol M. Browner, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator, and Mario Cuomo, Governor of New York).
