The ability to read and write effectively is invaluable in modern society! The WVC English Department seeks to engage students in thinking critically about writing, reading, researching and the ways those skills affect individuals, their communities and the world. Those skills are universal to every other discipline; therefore, students who complete courses in the English Department increase their chances of succeeding in all other areas.

The English Department offers General Education courses in Composition, Literature and Creative Writing in face-to-face and online modes. Those courses prepare students for completing an AA/AS degree, transfering to universities, life-long learning and enrichment, and meeting the demands of contemporary labor markets in diverse fields such as communication, publishing, law, social work, public relations, marketing, writing, politics, teaching and expanding opportunities in technology.
