Welcome to the Butte College English Department.
The study of writing and literature teaches students how to read critically and write analytically, and is a necessary component for all levels of education. To prepare students for transfer-level academic research and writing courses, the English Department teaches clear writing, cultivates an appreciation of language and literature, and promotes the value of critical thinking, innovative ideas, and reasoned, civil discourse.
Please consider experiencing the joy of creativity in language through one of our creative writing courses, refine your abilities in logical thought and self-expression with a critical thinking class, or embark on imaginative explorations of our multi-faceted world through one of our many offerings in literature.
As a prospective or current student in the English department, you will find here all the information you need, whether it be course information, a schedule of department events, faculty bios, or a description of an Associates of Arts degree in English.
