Explore the English Degree
The English Department offers an Associate of Arts in English for Transfer degree. The degree provides students with a comprehensive study of composition, literary theory, and rhetorical strategies. Students become familiar with major themes, works, authors, and movements in literature, particularly British and American literature. Students are trained in composition and given a solid background in critical theory to explore literature as an intellectual discipline and art. The required courses help students hone critical thinking, research, rhetoric, and writing skills and prepare them for upper division coursework in English or a related field in which strong writing and critical thinking skills are valued, such as education, law, or business.
