English Emphasis

Associate of Arts Degree
Program Description
Sioux City, Cherokee & Denison

With its focus on critical thinking and clear communication, the English program includes a variety of composition and literature courses which satisfy the requirements for the Associate of Arts degree while preparing students to finish the baccalaureate degree at four-year colleges and universities.

English students become adept at distilling meaning from complex situations and texts through the development of critical thinking and analytical skills. This discipline offers students the chance to read, write, and argue passionately about contemporary issues as well as perennial questions. All of these activities lead to students becoming stronger writers and thinkers.

A degree in English provides students with excellent preparation for any career. Graduates with a bachelor's degree in English frequently enter careers in education, journalism, publishing and editing, technical writing, advertising, and public relations. English is also a pre-professional major for careers in law, business, politics, and the ministry.
