English

College students must function in many worlds: worlds that demand literacy in written and spoken language, and worlds that demand literacy in languages that are more visual than verbal.  The English faculty recognize these two worlds and provide students with the critical and creative skills that can help them negotiate both the language-based and image-driven media and messages shaping their worlds.

We offer rich and varied courses that address these various literacies, serving the individual student, the academic community, and society at large.  Our courses include the study of literature, critical thinking, reading, writing, and media--all of which enhance communication skills, deepen understanding of cultural traditions, and prepare students for vocational programs as well as transfer to four-year colleges and universities.

Since the English major is so versatile and valuable, students who earn a degree often enter fields such as law, education, public relations, human services, news and journalism, radio and television, and advertising or corporate communications.

Keely Moriarty
Fire Academy Student

"The academy has shown me a lot more than I even suspected. It's showed me the physical demands that you need to reach and the instructors push you over the limits just so that when go to do the real thing you can achieve that. You'll push yourself and eventually reach the limits that you thought you were never capable of. You get really hands-on with all your crew and working with each of the instructors. The most valuable thing that I've learned in the academy is learning to work to your own level of excellence. Being at the college has been a great experience."
