"The writer writes in order to teach himself, to understand himself, to satisfy himself; the publishing of his ideas, though it brings gratification, is a curious anticlimax." ~ Alfred Kazin, Think, February 1963 

A program of study in English prepares the student for a liberal arts major and careers where the ability to write effectively is important:

  • Teaching   
  • Business
  • Advertising
  • Journalism 
  • Law
  • Public service

The JWCC program is also designed to increase skills in written composition, offer specialized work for English majors, and provide study in literature and the English language as a part of the preparation for vocations.
