The English Department at Northeast Texas Community College prepares students to enter many diverse professional fields. English majors develop solid writing skills that can be applied to upper-level studies, teaching, health care, or a career in public or private sectors. Our program teaches technological and creative skills that engage students’ intellects and equips them with the training needed to compete in a diverse workforce. In addition, our program provides the communication, analytical and interpersonal skills that are highly valued by today’s employers.
As a student in NTCC's English Department, you can expect to develop as a writer, communicator, and critical thinker. You will learn how to analyze language, media, and communication techniques, and to discuss how these ways of thinking and communicating shape our culture and your identity. Equipped with these skills, our students develop into lifelong learners that possess the ability to turn a variety of perspectives into practical and meaningful workplace and community solutions.
