Students may study rhetoric, critical analysis, literature, creative writing, and technical writing. This degree prepares students, through continued study toward a bachelor’s degree in English, for careers requiring strong writing, research, and analytical skills. Students complete general education courses in the Ohio Transfer Module aimed at developing competence in the exercise of independent intellectual inquiry and stimulating their examination of understanding of personal, social and civic values. Continued study of English at a bachelor’s or graduate level prepares students to work as teachers, editors, grant writers, and technical writers.
