Oakland is the second-best college in Michigan for English majors, according to a recent report from Zippia.com

Literature buffs, take note. Oakland University is the second-best college in Michigan for English majors. 

 

That’s according to a new report published on career website Zippia.com that examined how English majors at 12 Michigan universities fared in the job market after graduation.

 

The report mined data from the National Center for Education Statistics and ED.gov College Scoreboard for perspective on which colleges’ English majors perform best in the job market.

 

The following metrics factored into the rankings:

 

  • Career Results: mean earnings after six years and 10 years, and ratio of graduates employed to unemployed after 10 years

 

  • English emphasis: percentage of graduating class that are English majors

 

  • School performance: admissions rate, graduation rate, average cost of attendance and median amount of debt.

 

The University of Michigan-Ann Arbor was first on the list. Michigan State University, Wayne State University and Grand Valley State University rounded out the top five.
