A degree in English at Santa Clara provided me with the ability to read, analyze, and write effectively. Synthesizing information and expressing it well and to the appropriate audience has been a valuable asset in the professional world. Santa Clara's English program developed my analytical and interpersonal skills. Everywhere I have been employed, I have found that writing skills sharpened by my degree are in extremely high demand. Being able to articulately address a problem and frame a solution has proved invaluable in a business setting. My English major has given me a broad range of skills which I know I will continue to capitalize on in the future.
