The English Department offers courses in composition, literature, journalism, creative writing, and English as a second language. These courses are designed to help students develop skills in reading perceptively, thinking critically, and writing effectively. The Writing Center, located in Liberal Arts (LA) 201, offers supplemental support to assist students in developing these skills. In order to be placed into the proper level of composition class, all new students are required to complete a guided self-placement and meet with a counselor prior to enrollment. The guided self-placement assists students by helping them to identify their skill level in English, develop an educational plan, and choose appropriate classes. Students planning to transfer to a four-year institution and major in English should consult with a counselor regarding the transfer process and lower division requirements.
