Affordable College Degree for Careers in Journalism, Creative or Business Writing
The English department is one of the largest departments on campus
and offers an array of courses on writing and literature taught by a diverse and dedicated faculty.
We teach creative writing, journalism, business writing, and various kinds of essay writing designed
to develop critical thinking and analytical skills. We also teach classes that introduce students
to the wealth of literature around the world; we use the classics to tap into the stories
that define us and continue to shape our culture. There are also courses about the most relevant
and exciting genres of literature today. We have courses on hip hop and vampires,
environmental studies and human rights. The faculty is always innovating so that the English department
can offer classes that are relevant to students’ lives. We design our courses to meet students where they are
and take them to where they need to be so that they can meet their unique intellectual and professional goals. Whatever classes students choose to take in the English department,
they will learn to develop their critical thinking and analytical skills which will serve them well,
not only in their future employment but also in their lives. The English department wants to open up the world to students
so that they will leave NCC with the tools to be engaged and fascinated with it long after they have graduated.
