There are two concentrations in English. Both concentrations are designed for students who enjoy literature, who are writers themselves, and/or who want to become bloggers, journalists, or other types of writers. Both concentrations are excellent for developing the kinds of critical thinking and writing skills that are prized in the professional fields of business, public relations, media, education, health sciences, NGOs, and law.
Either concentration not only “rounds out” a professional education but develops characteristics such as effectively communicating, providing good leadership, possessing insight into others' values and points of view, having empathy and a supportive nature towards others, and possessing good critical thinking and problem-solving skills that make students indispensable to employers. These skills, along with the ability to create connections across complex ideas, are especially nurtured in the two concentrations.
