The English department seeks to enrich students' lives through exploration of the diversity of human expressions and cultures as well as to build a foundation for life-long learning and successful academic achievement via writing, literature, and film.

Program Outcomes

  • Examine culturally and linguistically diverse works in literature and film and demonstrate an aesthetic and intellectual comprehension.
  • Demonstrate skills appropriate to evaluation of information, critical thinking, and creation of organized, coherent writing.
  • Articulate complex ideas and employ evidence in the production of assigned work.

Degree Options

Students may earn an Associate in Arts AA-DTA degree (90 credits) which is designed for students planning to transfer to a baccalaureate institution with junior standing. Students pursuing this degree should meet with an academic advisor at WWCC and an advisor at their intended baccalaureate institution to determine an appropriate educational plan. (See AA-DTA in Degrees section of catalog).

Preparation for Success

Students are encouraged to read widely, to begin to develop the habit of self-education which will serve them in college and in their professional lives. Reading widely will enable students to more easily evaluate information, formulate positions on various topics, assess arguments, and employ critical thinking.
