About the Program

The essence of the English major involves the development of skills and techniques such as looking at language development and literature in-depth. This elicits the ability to analyze, to ascertain assumptions, to determine values, and to make intelligent judgments and decisions. For the reasons cited, a major in English would be appropriate for the professions of law, medicine, or industry.

A.A. in English
The Associate in Arts in English provides students with a solid basis for the continuing study of English, American and world literature and develops skills in critical thinking and writing.
