The degree in English is designed as an Associate in Arts transfer program. Its purpose is to provide the English major with a strong background in English, specifically, and the Liberal Arts, generally.
It may also be selected by the student to build a foundation for a career in law, the ministry, drama, journalism, or to obtain a strong English background for the baccalaureate degree. Each four-year college or university determines which BC3 courses are acceptable in transfer. Students should contact the institution for assurance prior to registering for the course at BC3.
The student/graduate will be able to:
- Write about canonical texts of English and American literature read and discussed in course work.
- Analyze canonical works of English and American literature within their historical, cultural, and/or literary traditions.
- Engage in written and oral discourse surrounding the cultural and literary traditions of English and American literature.
- Synthesize emerging ideas from the study of English and American literature.
- Apply contextual content found in the English program across curricula.
