I am surprised that many companies actually desire to hire English majors. According to the article, I am really differentiated if I understand humanities. Also, it mentions that the English majors are drilled to learn communication skills, writing skills, researching skills, and empathy. Those skills are very helpful in many ways once you are hired. I feel like I am very lucky because they are what we are going to learn in English IV class. The article says that the English majors have the ability of empathy because they read a lot of fictions. Our class is memoir which means we are not going to read any fictions. However, I think true story still can make us the people who have the ability. I strongly agree with this sentence, “We place a great value on a STEM education (degrees in since, technology, engineering and mathematics).” We are needed to have the degrees too. I think we should not be a student who has the STEM skills ONLY or English skills ONLY.
I am 90% sure not to take an English major at college. Therefore, taking English IV class this year is gonna be extremely meaningful for me. As the article says, English majors have learned to speak well, read well, and have extensive vocabulary. I will be able to learn these skills this year. They are important.
I didn’t know that writing skills make writing an advertisement or an email campaign better. Even describing of products! How nice majoring in English is!
