In addition to being inherently pleasurable and intellectually exciting, majoring or minoring in English helps develop important skills. English students learn how to read carefully and closely, write skillfully and stylishly, and argue analytically and critically. Students study not only poetry and prose, but also films, journalism, television, and the Internet. Graduates of the English department at Brandeis have gone on to become scientists, businesspeople, professors, lawyers, filmmakers, television producers, psychologists, fiction writers, poets, literary agents and social activists.
