Does an English Major do any good?


That's pretty flat. It also isn't true. We're writers. A degree in a writing field, like English, is hardly detrimental.

If the applicants have so little to offer that they fall

This may be why I long ago moved the "Education" topic on my resume to the bottom of the last page. I'm not embarassed by an M.A. in English, but I don't want to seem to be waving it around either.

If an entering college student loves literature and really
wants to spend time doing it, then more power to them.
But if parents and teachers claim that it will help them get a job,
they are liars. [...]

A person can be wrong without being a liar.
