English is a two-year program of study to prepare students for transfer. Students normally transfer as English majors or English/Secondary Education double majors. In order to achieve an Associate of Arts in English degree, students must successfully complete core courses with a “C-” or better to meet program requirements.

These students should consult with their advisor and the appropriate four-year college catalog.
