​​Faculty in the English Department help students improve reading, writing and thinking abilities, all of which are necessary components in any major field of study. Most students at COS take composition courses to fulfill either transfer or graduation requirements or to enhance their writing skills. Such courses vary in entry skill level from basic writing, where students learn to develop and sharpen their writing, to the critical thinking courses, in which students tackle issues and elements of logic.

In addition to composition courses, the department offers a wealth of courses in literature from survey courses, such as Introduction to Literature, to ethnic courses, such as Chicano Literature or African-American Literature, to period literature, such as Shakespeare or American Literature. An English major prepares a student for a number of professional opportunities — law, teaching, publishing, broadcasting, journalism, and many more.​

English Division Equity Statement

The English Division at College of the Sequoias welcomes students of all ethnicities, races, genders and gender identities, religions, ages, sexual orientations, abilities, socioeconomic backgrounds, regions, nationalities, countries of origin, and immigration status. We believe that valuing our individual differences deepens our understanding of one another and the world around us.

While the English language contains rich, beautiful, and creative structures for study, we acknowledge that it has supported systemic inequity. As much as the English language has provided opportunity, it also has embedded racist, sexist and ableist figures of speech. We are committed to challenging these inequities, empowering all students, and developing a more inclusive world. We are committed to continually learning and reflecting on ways to challenge institutional inequities.

Faculty in the English Division are committed to clearly communicating expectations and giving clear feedback with the goal of making sure every student has the chance to succeed. We are committed to equity and to the success of all our students.
