Additionally, English majors can get a minor in Journalism through a partnership with the University of North Texas Sue Mayborn School of Journalism.

The English degree prepares students to succeed in a wide range of careers that represent fields such as business, industry, education, non-profit, and government and non-government organizations. English majors gain employable skills such as critical thinking, strong writing and communication skills, and appreciation of literature, which develops a broader understanding of society.
