What would you do with a college degree in writing?
By studying Comparative Literature, I learned effective and creative ways to communicate. Communication is the cornerstone of any career, be it sales, technology or medicine. One must be able to absorb information, analyze it and be able to either teach it to others or write about it in a memo, article, or essay. Writing is essential to one's life.
What does literature have to do with the real world?
Literature is one of the greatest gifts in my life. First, there is reading for pleasure. There's nothing like reading a book that you don't want to put down. Then there's literature for learning and analysis. By reading different authors you learn about history, philosophy, style and genre. The last is reading literature to learn how to write. Character studies are fascinating and you learn to discern different points of view and characteristics.
Why is English an important subject?
English is the language of communication which is essential in everyone's life. The umbrella of "English" is vast, including grammar, reading and writing skills, being able to understand and express oneself.
