English Option, Assoc. of Arts in General Studies

ProgramDetailControl/CustomProgramData/Image/img/@alt
The English Option is recommended for students planning to pursue a bachelor's degree in English. The American, British and world literature survey courses and electives in this option provide the foundation for the upper-level literature classes students will take when they transfer to a four-year college or university. To build an understanding of the cultural context for the works of literature, the option also includes history and humanities courses. Students should consider the program requirements of their desired transfer institution as they make their course selections. Some colleges may require courses in a foreign language.
