The mission of the English Department is to help students become competent writers, researchers, and readers. We offer courses in basic English and general education courses that fulfill requirements for the Associate of Art (A.A.), Associate of Science (A.S.), and Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degrees as well as some program certificates. Most students are required to take English 101, which focuses on writing essays and reviewing grammar skills, and English 102, which focuses on conducting research and writing argumentative research papers. We also offer courses for the creative writer as well as a plethora of literature courses that expand students’ understanding of various literary forms (from fiction to poetry to film) and their appreciation of various cultures and time periods.
