WELCOME TO THE English Academic Subject Certificate (A.S.C.)  AT KAUA'I COMMUNITY COLLEGE! 

The English Academic Subject Certificate (A.S.C.) is designed for students who are interested in studying rhetoric and literature, beyond what is required for their current degree program. This pathway offers students an opportunity to develop advanced composition and rhetorical skills, refine critical reading and analysis skills, and explore multiple areas of literature that will help them to better understand and appreciate the diverse world around them. The program is designed for students to gain a solid grounding in English composition and literature, while affording the option of a focus on a particular literary genre or creative writing.

Completion of the English A.S.C. will allow students to satisfy the Liberal Arts A.A. degree’s requirements for FW, DL, HAP/PC, and two WI courses, as well as a DA course if ENG 104 is opted for. The program introduces students to some of the discipline’s general areas of study (genre, historical breadth, literature & culture, and composition/rhetoric) as defined in most Bachelor degree programs, including at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (UHM) and the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo (UHH). It also serves as an introduction to UHM and UHH areas of study within their English majors, satisfying UHM’s English degree requirements for FW and prerequisites for all 300-level courses and UHH’s English degree core requirements for ENG 200-level courses.

Program Student Learning Outcomes (PSLOs) approved 09/23/2019:

  1. Demonstrate collegiate-level English language and writing skills, including grammatical correctness, purposeful editing, awareness of audience and purpose, disciplinary conventions, and stylistic complexity.
