Explore the power of language
English courses can help you, in any discipline, think actively and communicate clearly. Literature courses allow you to understand and interpret language, culture, and tradition, and writing courses develop the skills necessary to articulate your own views with clarity and style.
Literature is the art of discovering something extraordinary about ordinary people, and saying with ordinary words something extraordinary.
Composition courses hone your ability to articulate your thoughts. They show you how to evaluate and disseminate information. They enhance your ability to express and defend your ideas. They help you analyse and make arguments. Not only are these skills vital in the academic setting, but they also enhance everyday clarity and conviction.
Literature courses sharpen your critical thinking skills. As you study and interpret great works, you will learn to see the world through diverse points of view. You will explore cultural, social, political, and historical contexts, and learn how to express your insights into different people’s experiences. Literature broadens horizons and illuminates perspectives.
Technical and professional writing courses aid you in becoming a competent workplace communicator. You will write correspondences, proposals, manuals, and reports, and learn the value of thoughtful document design. Whether you are in sport and exercise, technology, community services, environmental technology, or engineering transfer, we have an English course for you.
Not only do we offer the English courses you need to satisfy your Camosun program requirements, but many of our first and second-year courses transfer to other post-secondary institutions. If you are pursuing further studies in English, the humanities, or the social sciences, you can make a great start at Camosun where the classes are small and our instructors are passionate about what they teach.
