Focus Area: English/Literature

The English/Literature focus area provides an excellent foundation if you are interested in transferring to a four–year college to earn a bachelor's degree with a major in communication, literature, English, or English education. This program also applies if you want to take selected English and literature courses to fulfill general education requirements. Classes focus on oral and written communication, literature, drama, religion, philosophy, creative writing, and media. Once you have a bachelor’s degree, jobs can be found in secondary education, public relations, journalism, and other writing–related fields.
