We live in such a noisy world, so many voices trying to get our attention.

But who captures our attention?

That’s easy: whoever tells the best story.

Storytelling is the new must-have skill in business, advertising, marketing, and public relations. Even Forbes agrees.

You can acquire great storytelling skills in the English department via these minors:
  • Creative Writing
