FCC’s English courses are designed to build the analytical reading, effective writing, informational literacy, and critical thinking skills that are central to ongoing academic, workplace, and life success. We offer courses at every level of student need and ability- including courses for non-native speakers- to encourage students to develop into lifelong learners.
The English faculty teach courses using a variety of instructional methods designed to enable students to research, analyze, summarize, interpret, synthesize, assess, and communicate responsibly. Our literature courses explore a wide variety of cross-cultural works that encourage students to appreciate literature for its aesthetic value and as a window into the human experience.
We offer journalism and creative writing courses as well as opportunities for students to contribute to our college newspaper, The Commuter
, and our literary magazine, the Tuscarora Review
