Pulaski Technical College

Department of English

Thank you for visiting the homepage of the English Department at Pulaski Technical College.

The English Department at Pulaski Technical College upholds and promotes the general education objectives as stated in the PTC catalog by requiring students to increase their capabilities to communicate through writing, speaking and reading; reason logically and think independently and critically; develop a basic understanding of people, cultures and society; develop an appreciation of lifelong learning; and develop teamwork and workplace skills.

We also support the goals and objectives of the Fine Arts and Humanities Division by preparing students to think critically; act with integrity; write across the curriculum; demonstrate computer literacy, information literacy, and cultural literacy; and finally, to understand the importance for civic and community involvement.

As a result of our commitment to these objectives, the department offers a number of courses, which include the gateway courses Composition I and II, as well as a variety of literature and creative writing classes from which to choose. All courses may be applied to the degree plans for the A.A., A.S., and A.A.S. as either a requirement or an elective.

Please click the links below for more information regarding course offerings, student services, publications, and events.

Please visit our site again, as it and our department continue to grow and adjust to meet our studentsí needs.
