What do you do with an... MA... in English?
Well, what if that doesn't strike my fancy as much as I thought it did at first?
What kind of job opportunities does an MA in English open up, or are there really any at all? Perhaps I'm being selfish and I only want to study what I like without sacrificing some for practicality, but does anyone here know what you can do with an MA in English besides teach or write a book about linguistics in 19th century English literature?
Also, regarding Ivy League admissions, does anyone know which schools care less about foreign language proficiency, or do they generally all want a reading knowledge of at least 1 foreign language? If you have a strong GPA, GRE, and writing sample can you skate by without it?
