Along with Philosophy and Int'l Relations, English is arguably the most difficult college major in the Humanities. This is largely due to the fact that being an English major encompasses the study of several other fields, including, but not limited to philosophy, psychology, history, sociology, law, and political science. English majors read and write far more than any other major, and offen suffer from severe caffeine addiction (or worse), insomnia, and manic depression.
Despite what lobotomized Business Majors believe, English majors (like many humanities majors) seek graduate school enrollment and end up with J.D.s, M.B.A.s, L.L.M.s, or Ph.D.s. Thus, they end up in lucrative careers with sexyass women. But best of all, they actually learn how to think and generally live rewarding lives because of that.

English Major: "... 3 years of college and that's all you know?"
Business Major: "Yup. But Ima still be rich."
English Major: "Sooo you essentially just paid over $100,000 for Excel and Powerpoint lessons, but you'll still be rich?"
Business Major: "Hellz yeah d00d."
English Major: *facepalm*

An English Major is a university student or any literate person who engages in close extensive reading. With their "expertise" in literature, they seem to think that they are experts of language and like to critisize other people's usage of the English language.
Can be applied to any one who judges word usage without at least a master's degree in Linguistics.
So the other day I was like totes and this total English Major was like "Totes? I see... A shorter more convenient form of the word: totally. This word is most commonly used by teenage girls.
The most obvious advantage of using this word is the time saved. Data collected at a prestigious university found that every syllable spoken takes approximately 0.14 seconds.
The same prestigious university also found that the average valley girl says the word totally around 190 times a day."
