SUMMARY

Majoring in English Language and Literature is not only a valuable choice, but generally a mandatory first step for scholars intending to begin a career as a content editor, a news editor, or a social media manager. In fact, english language and literature is a surprisingly popular major choice, ranking as the 18th most popular major. Last year, there were 34,070 english language and literature diplomas received. In-state tuition for english language and literature at private colleges is, on average, 4.1 times more expensive than their public peers.

With an impressive 1325 schools having programs for english language and literature odds are that any universities you are interested in will have an option for you. If you are looking to immerse yourself with other english language and literature majors, look at colleges in California which have more undergraduates admitted to english language and literature than any other state. Zooming out, the best region to study english language and literature is in the Southeast region with University of Central Florida, Florida International University, and Florida State University best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick for the best conference to major in english language and literature is the Pacific-12 Conference with University of California-Berkeley, University of California-Los Angeles, and Arizona State University-Skysong representing the conference. Based on our extensive list of the best colleges, our choice for the best college for english language and literature is Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The objectively 'best' school is not necessarily the 'best' school for every student. There might be many more perspectives to consider when selecting college. Features such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food might definitely sway your inclinations on where to go to college. Here at authority.org, we have examined the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are interested in which english language and literature college has the best campus, the answer is Harvard University. If you are very interested in which school is home to the best campus, we have a whole page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, government databases, student reviews, and more to compare each major in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can find our well researched list for the universities with the best student life and, from that list, our selection of the university with the best student life for english language and literature is Cornell University. Are you curious why? Keep reading to find out more about our top selections. Some of our picks will probably surprise you.

If cost is a significant influence in your choice of where you attend school, you might be cautious about Columbia University in the City of New York.

Even more broadly, the most expensive region of the U.S. for english language and literature is the New England region which is best demonstrated with Amherst College with a cost of $57,640, Tufts University with a cost of $57,324, and Brown University with a cost of $57,112.

In-state learners can anticipate paying in the neighborhood of $9,700 for a degree in english language and literature. That cost grows intensely to an average of $21,800 for an out-of-state public-school student. Our choice for the college representing the best value for english language and literature: Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Through this link you can find our comprehensive list for the colleges we believe to be the best value overall. That being said, this list is predicated on the assumption that you are an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when it comes to in-state tuition, but we do not know in which states any one student has residency.

Earnings for english language and literature students range widely, but two-years after completing the major graduates will regularly earn around $42,200. While there is much variation in pay; top earners can make up to $85,700. Right out of college, the minimum earning opportunities within the english language and literature space make $21,000, which could be worse. The top earning graduates from english language and literature graduated from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and if you want to find the universities with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The all-around diversity of english language and literature is solid, ranking within the 58th percentile of all programs. The university with the highest composite diversity for english language and literature is Massachusetts Institute of Technology and here you can find our general list for the schools which have the most diversity. The financial diversity of English Language and Literature only is in the 31st percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is actually above financial diversity, in the 52nd percentile. White undergraduates make up the largest share, 61%, of those majoring in english language and literature. Additionally, 70% of undergrads seeking an english language and literature degree are women.

The median rating for english language and literature professors is 4.2 stars, a ranking that is 5% greater than the average score across every major; which is a good ranking. If you want to find the most popular english language and literature instructor in the country, take a look at Karen Taylor- Kusterer at Northern Virginia Community College. This might come as a surprise, but the top ranked english language and literature instructors by student are found at Montgomery College. As we including information beyond simply rankings we find that the school possessing comprehensively the best instructors for english language and literature is Massachusetts Institute of Technology. One can find more detail on our evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, as well as many of the finest examples of professors in the country.

Finally, the most difficult school to get into for english language and literature is Stanford University. While we think of this list more as a novelty, we have an extensive page of the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, we do hope you understand that approaching the education process with a perspective primarily shaped by superlatives might cause issues. We encourage you to explore our more focused pages on different schools and read a couple of our helpful background pages on beneficial things to look out for as you continue your university search.
