Do you need to brush up on writing and reading skills?

Try our ENG 1, ENG 3, ENG 4, ENG 5, or ENG 134 classes.

(ENG 4 & 5 focus on reading)



Ready to begin your 2-year A.A. degree?

Do you plan to transfer from TCCto a 4-year college or university?

You definitely need our ENG 111 and ENG 112 classes.


Are you a good storyteller?

We have creative writing classes for you.
Also, if you're already a student, consider submitting your work to ChannelMarker.

Need literature electives ?
Do you simply enjoy reading and discussing works from other time periods, cultures, or famous writers?

We offer plenty of classes to satisfy your needs and interests:





Would you like to use what you're learning in English right away in another class, rather than waiting until next semester or next year?

We offer an increasing number of learning communities that link an English class to one or two classes in other disciplines. Check our schedule each term to see what's being offered, but past communities have included the following clusters:



Is your schedule so erratic or your responsibilities such that an online course will work better for you than a face-to-face class?

We offer online versions of many of our English courses. Just look for the classes whose sections begin with O. For example, ENG 111 011N


We hope to see you in class soon!
