From the development of your own critical reading, thinking and writing skills to
studies of genre-specific writing like novels, poetry, short stories and essays, Collin
College’s English courses offer a choice for every student.
Composition and rhetoric courses focus on writing as a process requiring planning, analysis and research, allowing you to express your opinion about the material clearly and with conviction. You can take your writing a step further with electives in creative writing or technical writing.
Sophomore-level courses include surveys in global and national literatures and genre-specific courses focusing on novels or short stories.
Writing Centers, available on each campus, provide students with professional consultation in composing, writing and revising assignments in a variety of disciplines.
To earn an associate degree, complete the 42 credit hour General Education Core, and 18 credit hours of general studies electives and the Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS) degree requirements.
