What can I do with an English degree?
If you major in English at MDCC, you could certainly go on to become a writer or teacher. However, there are many other avenues that an English degree can open up for you. English majors learn skills in reading, writing, and critical thinking that can be applied to a wide range of fields. Many English majors go on to study law, journalism, communication, or advertising, but the only limit to what you can do with an Associate’s Degree in English is your imagination!
