Bachelor of Arts with a Major in English

I am currently a communications and marketing consultant working for the City of Seattle Race and Social Justice Initiative. However, I have also written employee handbooks, training materials, social media posts, blogs, operations manuals, and work contracts. Every part of my job requires strong research and writing skills, and I simply wouldn’t be able to do this work without my degree in English. I am also the host of a sports podcast and have written many episodes from the ground up. The English degree not only taught me critical thinking skills, but also creativity and adaptability.”- Leisl Sakschewsky, MA graduate 2009
