A message from the English Division

The English Division is here to support you during this challenging time of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Our faculty are sincerely looking forward to connecting with you, teaching you, and learning from you in our writing, literature and humanities courses.

In Summer 2020 and Fall 2020 our classes will be taught either as remote, online, or hybrid. If you enjoy interacting live with your instructor at a set time or times each week, choose a remote class. If you prefer to work more independently and have a schedule for which flexibility is a must, choose an online class. If you like a little bit of both, look for a hybrid course…

Please check out the video to learn more about these different types of course offerings. We can’t wait to see you in our classes.

Sincerely,
The GCC English Division Faculty
