A degree in English is good preparation for continued training in areas such as creative writing, law, government, journalism, marketing, public relations technical writing and many social science fields.
The field of English encompasses a wide range of careers in fields that require excellent communication skills and an understanding of verbal and non-verbal communications. Strong writing and critical reasoning skills are developed, resulting in a broader awareness of individual voice and cultural interactions.
Courses in composition, creative writing and literature teach essential skills for clear written communication and provide insight into past and present cultures across the world. Prepare for transfer to a bachelor's degree program leading to possible careers in professional writing, journalism, teaching and related fields. Bachelor's degree options are available through the Lower Columbia Regional University Center.
