Student reading a book.

The GRCC English Department offers a nurturing and challenging environment where students can learn to use writing and literature as a way to make sense of experience, bring order to chaos, better understand self and the world and learn to communicate effectively. When students take classes in the English Department, they expand their skills in reading, writing, listening, speaking and thinking through encounters with the work of historically and culturally significant writers. They bring to class the experiences of their generation, the stamp of their own lives and the ability to express their own voices.
