Welcome to the American English Language Program, Linguistics and Communication Studies Division.
Our goal is to empower students in a globally diverse society to become stronger communicators and engaged citizens of the world. Whether your interests are learning to read, write, and speak English for academic purposes; exploring the history of languages; or transferring to a four-year institution with a communication studies associate’s degree, faculty and staff in this division look forward to assisting you.
There is an academic department on each of the three campuses, and instructional support is available to students in the Writing, Reading and Language Centers on each campus. Learn more about the division’s departments, faculty, students and curriculum through the links on this website.
