English
Associate in Arts

Purpose

The Associate in Arts degree with an emphasis in English provides introductory-level and survey courses within the parameters of an English major as that English major is defined at the baccalaureate degree-granting institution to which the student transfers. Most English departments at the baccalaureate level will accept 10-15 credits of lower-level English courses as meeting minimum requirements toward a major in English. English credits taken at Centralia College beyond the 10-15 acceptable credits at the baccalaureate institution will be considered elective credits and may or may not fulfill English major requirements at the baccalaureate transfer institution.

Please refer to the Distribution Requirements and their criteria listed on pages 33-35 of the 2012-13 Centralia College catalog.
