English Teacher Education Option, AA
The purpose of the English transfer track is to prepare you for entry into upper‐division studies in English. A Bachelor of Arts in English will prepare you for further studies in English, writing, and literature as well as other graduate programs, including law and graduate business school. As Rachel Reiser, assistant dean at Boston University’s Questrom School of Business, observes, businesses want workers who have not only technical knowledge but also “the ability to think, the ability to write, the ability to understand the cultural or historical context of whatever business decision they’re making."
A Bachelor of Arts in English can also pave the way for careers in journalism, public relations, and other fields that require communications skills. The English transfer track also enables you to enter English education programs and become certified to teach English on the middle school and high school levels.
