The English and Humanities Departments offer a range of courses that give you the foundation skills for all the other courses you will take at Merritt (and beyond) and also satisfy graduation and transfer requirements. Our courses offer students the opportunity to read, write, and think critically about a diversity of ideas and topics. Visit the Merritt Class Schedule for specific courses and meeting times and days. Also visit the English faculty pages to learn more about our English faculty and the department. If you have any questions, please contact the Department Chairs.
Careers for English majors include a variety of options such as law, education, journalism, mass media, marketing, public relations, communications, business administration, and the humanities.
