we talk about Irish literature, let's address your major concern:
What can you do with an English major? Nothing...and yet, everything.
Studying English develops crucial critical thinking skills. Businesses
seek people who are polished in written and spoken English and
who have the cultural knowledge to represent their business in
the larger community. From CEOs to healthcare providers, English
majors are everywhere.
An Irish Literature Concentration will enhance these skills within a European
cultural context. This track is for someone who is attuned to European society,
particularly relevant issues of today's world. The student must be able to comprehend
the general directions of writing in the English language throughout the world.
