Are There Any English Majors in the House?

From an essay called "The Decline of the English Department" by William M. Chace.

"The literary humanities and, in particular, English are in trouble for reasons beyond their control and for reasons of their own making. First, an obvious external cause: money" (3rd section).

I never really ran into anyone that said, "English? Why are you going into English? There's no money in that." I've heard stories from other English majors about it though. I always wanted to major in English since I was a kid and instead of hindering me, my parents were very supportive of what I wanted to do. But yeah, I realized money could be an issue so I decided to minor in Psychology.

More English majors here...

My parents weren't the ones who asked, actually. It was mostly my teachers and other random people, like the lady who cuts my hair. I still don't really know what I want to do with my life.
