Studying English can help students pursue a career as an author, editor, technical writer, or screenwriter. It also offers a strong foundation for careers in advertising, education, public relations, and law, to name a few. Schoolcraft’s courses cover everything from grammar, essay and research writing, and creative writing skills to more professional disciplines like journalism or technical writing.
There are also courses that delve into great literary works through the ages. Students can gain additional knowledge and experience by applying for a position with the student newspaper, the Schoolcraft Connection, or by submitting articles to The MacGuffin, a peer-reviewed literary journal.
Students interested in studying English should talk to their Academic Advisor about transfer guides and articulation agreements with Schoolcraft College. Students interested in studying English at a 4-year university may be interested in completing the Associate of Arts Degree at Schoolcraft College or completing the Associate of Fine Arts - Creative Writing Track.
