English & Creative Writing
The HCC English Department offers associate degree options in literature and creative writing.
If you love to read...
Consider the English Option, particularly if you intend to pursue a B.A. in English at a four-year institution. You'll study great works of literature – from a range of diverse sources – and you'll hone your analytical and critical skills. Click here for more info and a list of required courses.
If you love to write...
Consider the Creative Writing Option, which transfers well into four-year programs in English, Creative Writing, or any Liberal Arts area. You'll explore fiction, poetry, drama, screenplays, and creative nonfiction. Students get to know each other easily in creative writing classes, and you don't have to be in the degree option to take them. Everyone is welcome.

HCC students have a great opportunity to learn more through the merging of college and community resources."
