English Tests

The Georgetown Center on Education and Workforce’s 2010-11 survey of the college graduate labor market found that recent math and computer graduates have the same unemployment rate as English majors, putting to rest the myth that English degrees are better or worse than math and computer degrees. And when you look closely, English majors have some good-paying career options, according to Katie Bardaro, lead analyst for online salary database PayScale.com.

Monster.com profiled English majors and found them working as Project Managers, Proposal Managers, Technical Writers, Marketing Directors, Managing Editors and Web Developers and making salaries in the $55,000 to $65,000 range. Smart students who plan to major in English know they save money the test-for-credit way and start building their careers right away.
