Students reading text

Welcome to the English Program at Cabrillo College.

Students majoring in English at Cabrillo may take courses in composition, critical thinking, research writing, creative writing, journalism, film, teaching and tutoring techniques, and a wide range of literature courses, including British and American surveys, Mythology and Folklore, Children's Literature, World Literature, and studies of Chicana/o-Latina/o, Native American, African American, and Latin American poetry and prose. These courses help students to write effectively and persuasively, to hone their critical thinking skills, and to cultivate their understanding and appreciation of literature in the context of culture. Majoring in English leads directly to careers in teaching, journalism, publishing and editing, technical writing, public relations, and advertising. It is also excellent preparation for careers in law, communications, government, and a variety of business environments.
