I am a semi-retired writer sailor, martial artist, and trouble-maker living in Brazil.
I was a technical writer and department manager for over 30 years. In that time, I learned that a degree in English was no guarantee someone could write. What I did learn was that people with degrees in English made terrible technical writers. Technically inclined people rarely stdy for degrees in English.
Yes I did meet a few exceptions. Mostly, I learned that a degree in English often resulted in perfectly punctuated gibberish. Writing is a talent separate from scholarship, which is all that is required for an English degree.
It reached the point that, when presented with a resume that boasted a degree in English, I put it in the "discard" pille.
