English, A.A.


Return to Degree Plans & Certificates - Academic/Technical Return to: Degree Plans & Certificates - Academic/Technical

The English Department offers a variety of writing and literature courses. For students who enroll in English classes for the first time, placement testing is required. If performance on these tests reveals inadequate preparation for satisfactory completion of the college-level course work, ENGL 0300 and/or ENGL 0301 are required. If students are required to take ENGL 0300, they must pass the course with a “C” or better before enrolling in ENGL 0301. If students are required to take ENGL 0301, they must pass the course with a “C” or better before enrolling in ENGL 1301.

ENGL 1301 and ENGL 1302 are designed to satisfy the requirement of most colleges that demand six hours of freshman composition and to meet AA and AS exit competencies.

In selecting sophomore English courses, students should consider both their major and the institution to which they plan to transfer. When only three hours of sophomore English are required, the student may choose any of the three-hour sophomore courses. If the total required is six hours, most colleges accept any combination of the three-hour sophomore courses.

Students planning to pursue a baccalaureate degree in English should base all course selections on the degree plan from the institution to which they plan to transfer. Students who intend to major in English and have not yet decided on the senior college that they will attend should follow Palo Alto College’s generic degree plan for English.
