The English Major @ LaGuardia

English Courses


The Mission of the LaGuardia Writing Program:

The Writing Program fosters a journey of transformation for all student levels. Writing is a foundation for students’ intellectual engagement in the humanities and their participation in a democratic society. To strengthen this foundation, faculty employ inclusive pedagogies that address the diversity of our student population. Our writing courses focus on the integration of reading and writing, using culturally diverse texts to connect critical close reading practices with interpretive claims. Students gain a deeper understanding of the writing process by exploring the relationship between rhetoric and genre, in addition to interrogating digital/multimodal writing practices and contexts. Courses pay significant attention to revision and collaborative student learning.

Drs. Sonia Alejandra Rodriguez, Bethany Holmstrom, Laura Tanenbaum, Carrie Conners, and Liz Clark talk about Creative Writing at LaGCC, why they write, how writing keeps them connected, and what goes on in their CW courses.
