English

In the Chabot College English Department we teach reading, writing, and critical thinking. In our classes we work with texts and ideas, and connect them to our experience as human beings. We are a student-centered and equity-focused department that aims to help all Chabot students achieve their academic, professional, and personal goals. We offer composition, literature, and creative writing courses that can fulfill your GE, AA, AA-T and transfer requirements, or be transferable electives. We offer an AA-T and AA in English and Certificates in Creative Writing and Writing.
