College Composition & Reading
About the Program
The CCD English department will help you build the skills you need to achieve academic and professional success as well as encourage your civic and creative contributions to our community. Composition classes are required for students pursuing transfer coursework and help prepare you to successfully complete writing assignments throughout your academic career. Creative writing classes allow you to explore your expressive side through fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, and more.
While the courses in this area do not immediately lead you to an Associate of Arts degree, like our English with an emphasis in literature program, these course provide a solid foundation to those seeking to enchance their current career, or to students who are recently new to the English language and who have completed the English as a Second Language courses at CCD.
