Major Infatuation: English

Tell us why you love your major.

People say: You read a lot!
We surely do.
We write a bit
and think some too.

For me, the magic of studying English is this: that I begin to know every word in the English lexicon as an intimate and personal friend.

English is for anyone who finds beauty in sound and structure and argument, or who values the ability of the written word to accurately capture life as we live it. I love decoding how masters of the language manipulate its twists and turns. Studying English has taught me to apply my relentlessly logical brain to parse any argument, regardless of topic or discipline.

Words are power.
