Studying English is a great place to start if you are interested in exploring philosophy, history, psychology, religion, anthropology, sociology or politics. You can also continue towards an associate of arts degree in English at Selkirk (two years) and then a bachelor of arts degree in English (two more years at a university).

Graduates of English enjoy successful careers because their skills are always in demand. Employers hire English majors because they have advanced skills in writing and public speaking; critical thinking and creative problem-solving; research, analysis and interpretation. In addition, employers like to work with English majors because these students have developed ethics, empathy, and an appreciation of diversity.
