Rethinking the Lowly College English Major
When college students decide to major in English language and literature, common wisdom holds that their parents are unlikely to react less than positively. Some of the most stereotypical responses students can expect, according to common lore, can be expected to be . . .
- “I’m paying all that college tuition so you can major in English?”
- “What kind of job are you going to get as an English major?”
- “Couldn’t you think of a major that stands a better chance of getting you a high-paying job?”
