The Language Arts Department at Southern Union State Community College prepares students to succeed and build core competencies in critical thinking, oral communication, written communication, foreign language experience, and knowledge of self and society.
The courses offered by the department range from transitional classes in English and reading to the traditional freshman English composition and sophomore literature courses, as well as courses in speech and Spanish. The academic courses of ENG 101, 102, 251, 252, 271, 272; SPA 101, 102; GRN 101, 102; and SPH 106 and 107 satisfy Southern Union’s graduation requirements, and they transfer to four-year colleges and universities. The Language Arts Department offers a transitional course in reading and writing, ENR 098, for students who need additional instruction before making the transition into college-level courses.
The Language Arts faculty are committed to helping students succeed! Both full time and adjunct faculty are highly qualified professionals who are dedicated to student success. Faculty are available and accessible to students for further instruction, advising, and promotion of student learning outcomes.
The Fine Arts and Language Arts Departments sponsor a tournament each year which provides opportunities for juniors and seniors in area high schools to perform and compete in nine areas of competition: composition, cultural literacy, literature, extemporaneous speaking, poetry, art, theater, music, and dance.
