The English Major (AA-T)

The English major gives students an appreciation of literature and increased skills in written communication. The Associate for Transfer in English degree will provide seamless transfer opportunities to California State Universities for those students desiring to transfer to the CSU system. This degree is flexible enough to meet transfer requirements at four year insitutions. Through the study
of language and literature, students are better able to communicate, to persuade, and to understand human nature. More specifically, superior ability to understand and to use English is necessary for success in most careers, particularly those in education, writing, business, journalism, and law.
