English, Class of 1967

I was an English major, let's get serious..I could teach Jr. College level, work in a publishing co. or go on and pursue a Master's degree and then a PhD..to teach on a higher level. Liberal Arts degree says it all. Since I worked full-time in an unrelated field, I was prepared for the real world. Don't know how well it is currently preparing students.
