When it's a dolphin.
There’s a common perception that an English major is not a foundation for a job as anything other than a teacher. An undergraduate degree in English doesn’t directly map to a specific job or occupation the way, say, a Business or Accounting major would. This isn’t a problem unique to English; it’s true for a number of humanities or liberal arts degrees that emphasize a broad range of skills and knowledge. But what an English degree does provide is a broad range of skills that relate to communicating. English majors are usually adept at writing, at interpreting writing, and are reliably good with verbal communication and understanding spoken and written language.
English majors receive a great deal of training and practice interpreting and integrating writing information so that they not only understand it themselves, they can communicate it to others verbally or in writing. That makes them particularly suited to jobs that require serious communication skills. Companies and small businesses both need employees who can express ideas or communicate information efficiently, clearly, and appropriately, whether in terms of communicating within the organization or between the organization and clients, customers or vendors.
English majors are often employed as writers, but they are frequently found working in marketing and sales, or in human resources, both of which are areas where communication is key. English majors are often especially effective writers in terms of marketing and public relations because they understand the emotional impact of words, and communicating verbally or in writing to persuade. You’ll often find English majors working quite successfully in retail, especially in the technology sector, or in bookstores, where being well-read is an asset, and a pathway to management positions. Publishers of all kinds, including magazines, newspaper and online publishers, frequently look for English majors. Be prepared for an entry level job, but remember, you’re accumulating skills and experience.
An English degree is often a step to another degree; English majors often go on to law school, medical school, or to graduate degrees, especially graduate degrees in psychology or library science. If you’re currently enrolled in school, and contemplating an English degree, you might consider an Internship in a company that has a need for employees with advanced communication skills, especially a publisher. Publishers frequently offer internships, which may be an excellent way for you to learn if publishing works for you.

CPA is a certification. So you take the test and get the certificate. I know you must have at least a Bachelor's in Accounting. Most people I know in school who want to be accountants are doing a combined Bachelor's and Master's program.
