Healthcare/Pharmaceutical Industry

Today our focus on preventing disease, illness and injury has created multiple job sectors requiring many different job skills.  The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that in the 2020s, three in every ten jobs will be in the healthcare industry.

How does an English degree prepare you to work in healthcare?  It depends on what job.  Entry-level jobs requiring just a bachelor’s degree frequently involve administrative roles, roles requiring organization and communication skills.  Jobs requiring additional training typically require general education in science, but no more, for entry into such programs.
