English Courses

All of the degree programs at ACC require students to successfully complete English composition courses; different programs require different courses. Before students enroll in composition courses, the students must demonstrate their writing competencies by means of a placement test. English 121-122 is the traditional college-level freshman composition program. The courses are sequential and acceptable for college transfer. All A.A. and A.S. students must complete this sequence; however, those students who demonstrate deficiencies in their writing competencies will be required to begin their writing programs in the College Composition and Reading (CCR) courses: CCR 092 and CCR 093 and CCR 094. Students who test into CCR 092 or lower are also required to co-enroll in AAA 109.

English 131 is a college-level course designed especially for students interested in occupational or technical fields. Many occupational programs require English 131; however, some students may need CCR 092, CCR 093, CCR 094 before enrolling in English 131. LITERATURE and HUMANITIES courses (listed separately) provide opportunities for refinement of reading, writing and critical-thinking skills. See also JOURNALISM.
