English

Overview

The English and Communications faculty are dedicated to helping students apply the knowledge and skills gained through the study of writing and literature to successfully communicate in work and life roles.

Two levels of developmental writing courses are available. The department offers a wide selection of transferable general education courses including Composition 1 and 2 and literature courses including the Survey of American Literature, The English Novel, Native American and African American Literature, an Introduction to Poetry and others.

Students planning to transfer to a four-year degree generally enroll in Composition courses and one or two related electives as they fulfill requirements for the Associate in Arts, Associate in Science and Associate in Applied Science degrees.
