In today's workplace, it's not enough to have technical skills. You need to be able to make good decisions and to think critically with a global perspective. Competency in English, with strong reading, writing, and critical thinking skills, provides the foundation for your future academic and professional success. That's why a college education includes course work in the liberal arts—composition, reading, religion, philosophy, literature, and more. In Parkland's Department of Humanities, you will acquire the skills that sharpen your intellect.

The Humanities Department offers learning opportunities at varying skill levels. For example, not everyone comes to Parkland ready for college-level English. We offer developmental composition and reading for native speakers. For non-native speakers, we offer a wide range of English as a Second Language courses, from those stressing language acquisition skills to those focusing on advanced composition. More advanced students looking for a challenge will find it in the department's A with Honors Literature Discussion Series or other Honors Program offerings.
