“Literature is my utopia.” – Helen Keller

Turn your passion for reading and writing into a plan of action. Major in English at Ohio Northern and you’ll learn by doing. You’ll have opportunities to work on publications, interact with well-known writers, collaborate with professors on creative works, intern in exciting fields, study abroad and present at conferences. You’ll develop a skill set that’s valuable in every field and industry. A supportive family of peers and professors will help you prepare for a successful career doing what you love. Some wonder, “What can you do with an English major?” We wonder, “What can’t you do?”
