Associate of Arts Degree Programs with Disciplinary Distinction in English

Let's Get Associated.

East Georgia is a great place to begin your studies in English. Here, you'll find:

  • Great faculty, such as Dr. Alan Brasher, a member of the Board of Regents Hall of Fame for Teaching Excellence
  • Spacious facilities, including "smart" computer classrooms
  • Challenging opportunities to learn more and to build your skills, through work on the award-winning campus newspaper, Hoopee Bird, or on the College's literary magazine, Wiregrass; by tutoring students in the ACE; or by participating in the College's Global Movie Club.
  • The College Vision Series featuring world-renowned authors whose books are part of the curriculum and are brought in so that students can interact with them.

Where Will You Go From Here?

Most students who study English transfer to complete their four-year degrees and then master’s or professional degrees, and work as teachers, writers, attorneys, public servants, government officials, business and civic leaders, journalists, and in a wide spectrum of other careers. Written communication is a fundamental aspect of success in any career field, and therefore the possibilities for future careers are limitless for students with a strong background in English.

EGSC English students have transferred to complete their degrees at:

  • Georgia Southwestern State University
  • Georgia College and State University
  • Georgia Southern University
  • University of Georgia
  • Valdosta State University

I have an open discussion approach in the classroom. I encourage people to think about ideas and then to question and challenge those ideas, each other, and me.
