EnglishThe curriculum provides students with a basic foundation in academic and practical writing with the options of exploring creative writing and the critical analysis of literature. Students with an English degree often pursue careers in law, professional writing, teaching, public relations, editing for the publishing industry, creating  handbooks for the business world and writing news reports. The Associate of Arts and Associate of Science are transfer degrees and are awarded without designation of major, but do follow curriculum transfer plans.  These degrees indicate that a student has completed a course of study that is essentially equivalent to the first two years of a baccalaureate degree.

PLEASE NOTE: When selecting courses, students should consult the catalog of the school to which they intend to transfer.  They should then work with their DCC advisor to assure that the proper classes are being taken at DCC.  Together, the student and the advisor will select courses that will fit into the program at the transfer institution.
