Notes


*Credit students who are new to college (no successfully completed college coursework at other institutions) are required to take ACDV 101  in the first semester at CCBC. This is a 1-credit class, and it does not count towards the number of credits required for a degree or certificate. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) for this requirement to be waived.

 

**These courses meet the Arts and Humanities General Education requirement and the Diversity requirement.

Transfer Pattern Description


This degree pattern is designed to help students transfer to colleges and universities that offer a baccalaureate degree with a major in English. Beyond the General Education requirements and other degree, program, and elective requirements, this pattern should be considered in light of the requirements of the selected transfer institution. Students should consult with a transfer coordinator or an advisor for information about specific requirements.

Because four-year institutions vary widely in their requirements, it is strongly recommended that students who wish to pursue studies in English speak with an advisor from the Counseling Center and the English department head before registering for courses. This sequence of courses should be adjusted to meet the requirements of the transfer institution.

Transfer Pattern Outcomes


Upon successful completion of this transfer pattern, students will be able to:

  1. understand basic grammatical structure of sentences;
  2. identify and correct commonly made sentence errors;
  3. demonstrate the ability to formulate well-reasoned arguments;
  4. demonstrate the ability to evaluate arguments;
  5. understand the stylistic differences between academic writing and professional writing;
  6. apply a variety of strategies for revising texts to accomplish specific communication objectives and to meet the needs of specialized audiences;
  7. apply the appropriate writing style to a variety of formats, including business letters, resumes, manuals, proposals, and technical reports;
