Devon, student in Professional Writing, Rhetoric, & Technology

I am majoring in English because the concentration in Professional Writing, Rhetoric, & Technology has allowed me the opportunity to enhance my skills as a writer and effective communicator through countless new media. I compare the skills that I am acquiring through the English Program at USF to a piece of clay because, like clay, these skills can be shaped and molded to fit the demands of any career or graduate program I choose to pursue. Currently, my goal is to attend graduate school so I can get my Ph.D. in Education Administration. This degree will allow me the opportunity to work on high school and college campuses across the country. No matter what path I choose after I graduate, I will always be able to look back and say that the best decision I ever made was majoring in English.
