The Lone Star College-University Park English department offers courses that provide students with a strong foundation in rigorous academic writing, critical thinking, and awareness of themselves and the world. Students will benefit threefold: academically, professionally and personally.
In addition to Composition & Rhetoric and literature survey courses, students can take specialized courses such as Film and Literature or a learning-community course that links Composition & Rhetoric with U.S. History.
Courses are available in face-to-face, fully online and hybrid formats. For those who need additional flexibility, LSC-University Park also offers English courses on Saturday and Sunday.
