What is the program about?

The Associate of Arts in English comprises an array of literature courses that introduces students to the world of literature. Students planning to transfer to a four-year program in English or a related field will have a strong foundation based on the broad English curriculum, which also fulfills the first and second year general education requirements of most four-year colleges and universities. As part of this degree program, students must complete the requirements of the Ohio Transfer 36 in order to graduate.

Program Outcomes

  • Identify major authors, works, and literary trends in American and world literature.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of major literary themes and devices in American and world literature.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of a range of diverse voices in literature and the impact of various differences (such as gender, race, religion, disability, and sexual orientation) on literature by and about diverse populations.
  • Recognize within literature the systems of oppression, structures of power, and institutions that have historically advantaged and harmed groups within the U.S. and/or around the globe.


Completion of this program guarantees completion of the Ohio Transfer Module (OTM). OTM courses are guaranteed to transfer to any public institution in Ohio on a course-by-course basis or in total. Formal articulation agreements with other colleges and universities indicate how Sinclair programs and courses will transfer to other institutions.
