Collin College provides general academic courses and electives for students who plan to transfer to a college or university. Because of the various transfer requirements at colleges and universities, and to ensure enrollment in appropriate courses, students should verify course transferability and degree applicability with a Collin College academic advisor and/or the college or university that they plan to attend.

To earn an associate degree, complete the 42 credit hour General Education Core, and 18 credit hours of general studies electives and the Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS) degree requirements.

Check with your transfer institution before registering for general studies electives to make sure your courses will be degree applicable to your bachelor’s degree at the transfer institution.

From the development of critical reading, thinking, and writing skills to studies of genre-specific writing like novels, poetry, short stories, films, graphic texts, and essays, Collin College’s English courses offer choices for every student.

Composition and rhetoric courses, ENGL 1301  and ENGL 1302 , focus on writing as a process, requiring planning, analysis, and research, which allows students to express opinions about the material clearly and with conviction. Students can take their writing a step further with technical writing, ENGL 2311 , and electives in creative writing.

Sophomore-level courses include surveys in British, American, and World Literatures as well as Forms of Literature courses, which include the study of poetry, drama, short stories, novels, graphic texts, and/or film.

Writing Centers are available on each campus to provide students with professional consultations in writing and revising assignments.
