The English Program prepares students for transfer to a degree program in
English, comparative literature, creative writing, or education. Chaffey
College English courses include composition, critical thinking, fiction
writing, poetry, and literature. From mythology to LGBTQ+ literature, the
department offers literature courses that connect readers and writers
across time and across borders. The Associate of Arts for Transfer degree
in English allows students to transfer to schools in the California State
University system and other 4-year universities. English is a foundation for
success in many careers, particularly those in education, writing, business,
journalism and law.
