About English

Purpose: Anne Arundel Community College’s Arts and Science Transfer Degree with a concentration in English is designed to help students transfer to colleges and universities that offer a baccalaureate degree with a major in English and will transfer to all Maryland four-year public colleges. Students who study English at AACC will be challenged with taking a position and defending it with logic and reason. They will be taught to read analytically-to ask why-and to think critically and write persuasively. Since all of these skills transfer well to the job market, students who choose to pursue AACC’s Arts and Sciences Transfer Degree with a concentration in English set themselves up not only for transfer to four-year schools but for eventual careers across a wide range of occupations including publishing, journalism, media, advertising, marketing, public relations, education, technical communication, government, human services, public policy, research, law, and business.
