English majors are not as much of a juggernaut as other majors in terms of revenue, but they’re certainly on the rise.
The American Collegiate Athletic Association’s (ACC) latest revenue report shows that, on an annual basis, English majors’ revenue rose by more than $3 billion in the third quarter of 2017, surpassing even baseball’s.
While baseball’s revenue rose more than 30% in the quarter, English came in at a distant second, at $2.4 billion.
The ACC also reported that the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (ACCR&A) saw a 17% increase in revenue in the three months to March, while the Football Association of America (FA) saw an 8% increase.
English majors, however, have not been the only ones to see a surge in revenue.
Football and basketball, both of which had their best seasons in recent years, saw their respective revenue growth rates jump in the fourth quarter of last year.
According to Forbes, football’s revenue is up 25% in that same period, while basketball’s rose 20%.
However, there are many other factors at play in how English majors perform compared to other majors.
The ACC reported that English majors had an average revenue per student in 2019 of $10,906.
While that’s not too far off from the $12,876 reported by the NFL in 2019, it’s not nearly as high as the $15,056 reported by basketball.
American Collegiate Baseball Association (ACBA) reported a total revenue of $20.6 billion in 2019.
The league’s median revenue was $13,946 in 2018.
In 2019, English students spent $2,724 on food and $3,743 on housing, according to ACCB data.
As for college sports, the ACC reported the number of full-time students increased by almost 17% in 2019 to 3,632, up from 3,514 in 2018, and English students increased an astounding 25% to 636, up 11% from 624.
Football and basketball’s increase in total revenue was even more dramatic: Football’s revenue increased by more $9 billion in just one year, from $1.1 billion to $1,863.
Basketball’s revenue jumped by $1 billion in that one year to $2 billion, while English increased by $2 million in that time period to $3.4 million.
It’s not only English majors that have seen their revenue grow.
Last year, the National Collegiate Basketball Association (NCBAA) saw its total revenue increase by $3 million, or 22%.
The ACCB reported that basketball players saw a 16% increase, while football players saw an increase of 23%.
The growth in revenue has been attributed to the popularity of college basketball, which is one of the fastest growing sports in the United States.
Despite the increase in college sports revenues, the NFL and the NCAA have both been struggling to make ends meet.
The NFL is now spending $1 million per game on marketing, while NCAA revenue increased only by 3%, with only $1 in profit made.
However at the same time, the NBA and NCAA are spending $4.8 billion per year on the game.
For college athletes, college football, baseball and basketball are just the beginning.
There are also a few other ways in which English majors excel in the U.S. sports landscape.
“The major’s ability to generate a substantial amount of revenue for its students is the only real benefit,” ACCC President and CEO Richard Mack said in a statement.
“For example, English has a number of sports that are nationally recognized and which are highly popular in their respective states.
It’s this combination of quality sports that provides the most opportunity for the English major to grow its student body.
These include the football program, the women’s basketball program and the men’s soccer program.
Another key element of English majors success is their ability to create sustainable revenue streams that support the continued growth of the English program.”
According the ACC, English players spend an average of $4,400 per game, or about $5,000 per year.
While English majors spend more money than other majors, their revenue has grown over the last decade, from a low of $6,600 per student during the early 1990s to an average that was around $18,400 in the mid-2000s.
Other than sports, English also excels in international sports.
Over the last two decades, English student athletes spent more than three times as much on travel expenses than their counterparts in baseball and men’s basketball.
That trend is set to continue.
