Welcome to the English Department's website. Our writing courses are designed to help you become a more experienced and confident writer. Each year, students from every degree program at New York City College of Technology take introductory and advanced composition courses, as well as in career writing, creative writing, journalism, and technical writing. Some of our writing courses are partially online, fully online, or meet in a computer classroom, and we are currently developing a major in professional and technical writing. We also offer non-credit courses for students who may need more extensive preparation in reading and writing to succeed in college.
Our literature courses will allow you to explore a genre like poetry or fiction, a theme such as immigration or humor, or an important author. We offer courses on world literature, American literature, British literature, Asian American literature, film, and women writers. Some of our upper-level literature courses rotate as faculty members explore new research areas.
The English department sponsors an annual Literary Arts Festival featuring guest writers and a college-wide creative writing competition. We also publish The Journal of Urban Technology, Two Bridges Review, and Perspectives. Outstanding student writing from all disciplines is featured in the college-wide publication City Tech Writer.
