Words have power.

The English minor allows students to develop skills in communication, research, critical thinking, and focused creativity. Students can improve their understanding of people and cultural knowledge. Students learn how language works and how to use it effectively in a variety of contexts.

The program is open to students in any major, and can help prepare students for a career in law, public relations, education, politics, advertising, journalism, web marketing, publishing - or any career that requires critical thinking and persuasive writing.

Still deciding? Reflecting on your values, interests, personality traits, and skills will provide valuable insight as you explore major and career choices. FOCUS 2 CAREER, a self-guided assessment, education and career planning program, will help you do just that. SDSU students may access FOCUS 2 CAREER by using the code: jacks. After completing FOCUS 2 CAREER, you may find it helpful to discuss your results with a career coach in the Office of Career Development.
