Communication skills, including the ability to write well, are essential to personal, academic, and professional success. English students will develop or strengthen their reading, writing, and critical thinking skills while gaining a deeper appreciation for the role of writing and literature in art, culture, and history. These classes are beneficial to students who are learning English as a second language, pursuing a degree or related profession, or seeking personal or professional enrichment.

SCC’s English courses provide students with practical experience in expository, creative, and technical writing. Students will learn critical analysis, language structure, composition, and literary history before they choose a specific academic track. SCC also offers ESL classes for second-language learners, available at all skill levels from beginning to advanced. The ability to read and write well is useful in a broad range of fields and academic disciplines.

Students can utilize these skills whether they’re transferring to a four-year university or entering the job market immediately upon graduation.
