South offers the first two years of coursework to prepare you for a degree in English at a four-year university. All South students must take college-level English composition courses as part of their transfer degrees. Additional English courses are a great way to fulfill general education requirements and continue to improve your ability to communicate in writing.

Some students are not quite ready to start the college-level English courses and our Developmental English courses prepare you to succeed in those college-level courses. In addition to Composition courses, we offer courses in literature and creative writing. See our course listings for more information on our current offerings.
