English students will find that this list incorporates a variety of different subjects, eras, cultures and writing forms. Courses in contemporary literature, British literature, technical writing, understanding the narrative, and linguistics provide varying levels of study to students interested in pursuing careers in writing, literature analysis, teaching and more. Like many traditional English classes, this collection aims to combine politics, cultural trends, and economics to give students an inclusive understanding of the societies they study through literature, including the Caribbean, modern day British territories, the United States, Asia and other cultures around the world.
These classes also provide resources for students needing professional guidance and tips on transitioning from academic environments to the workforce. Technical writing can generally be a more profitable career choice for English majors, and students will benefit from the tutorial on maximizing technology to benefit their particular goals and jobs. For students wanting help pursuing their individual writing careers, though, certain classes in this list give quality tips and insight into developing a narrative, studying the effects of language on an audience and understanding how the narrative plays out in the contemporary digital age.
