Welcome to the Rockville English and Reading Department
If you are a new or returning student to Montgomery College, we welcome your visits, inquiries, and regular communication. The Rockville English and Reading Department office, located in 526 Macklin Tower, is open from 7:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. daily for students, faculty, and others interested in the comings and goings of our English and Reading courses. We offer a wide range of general education courses including reading, composition, literature, creative writing, journalism, and grammar and vocabulary. Many of our students take pre-college classes in developmental composition and reading before moving to the challenges of transfer courses such as Introduction to College Writing; Critical Reading, Writing, and Research; Reading and Study in College Content Areas; and the wide array of literature and creative writing classes.
When you are in the neighborhood, feel free to come by; when you are away from campus but need to reach us, please don't hesitate to call the office at 240-567-7409 or e-mail Elizabeth Benton, the department chair, at Elizabeth.Benton@montgomerycollege.edu .
According to education philosopher John Dewey, a well-rounded education provides the foundation for "a habit of learning," one that inspires the student to "learn to learn." The faculty and staff of the Rockville English and Reading department are committed to supporting the student's journey toward success beyond the walls of Montgomery College and the habit of learning that will undergird that journey.
