The English Department has a menu of courses as diverse as Madison Area Technical College itself. Courses include College Transfer and Career writing, Literature, Advanced Technical Communications and Creative Writing. The department has also developed a cluster of professional writing courses and certificates. These courses were designed to meet the needs of thousands of program and liberal arts transfer students attending any of Madison Area Technical College's campuses.
This department is flexible as well, offering online, hybrid, and accelerated courses beyond the more "traditional" semester-long experience.
All of these options are just part of the department's mission, which is to make the English classroom -- whatever the course may be -- an accessible and enriching experience for the student on a path toward personal and professional growth.
Vision: To be distinguished for the quality of instruction.
Mission: To provide a seamless curriculum that meets program and liberal arts transfer students’ needs in writing and literature and to prepare students for further education or to enter the workforce with effective writing, research and critical thinking skills.
Our Department Values:
2. Respect for Students
