Language is how we connect to and relate with each other, ourselves and the world around us. In order to forge the most meaningful connections possible, an understanding of and appreciation for the power of language is vital. Herein lies the value of studying English.

The English discipline bisects into composition and literature, each of which invites students to explore a world of human imagination and writing theory.

Whichever path an English major decides to choose, students can expect to develop skills in research, analysis, creativity and critical thinking.

Professionally, English majors may pursue careers in writing, teaching and editing, and students outside of the discipline can expect to improve their ability to communicate accurately and well. Being able to communicate effectively can make a person more marketable with competitive edge over candidates who are unable to do so.

MCC offers a range of English courses to choose from including creative writing, technical writing and numerous literature courses that explore diverse writers and cultures.
