The composition program at Whatcom Community College introduces students to “college writing,” in all its richness and complexity. As faculty, we seek to meet students where they are in their academic journey and help them become more aware of themselves as student-writers and as student-scholars. We seek to help students understand the expectations of academic community, the rhetoric and conventions of academic discourse, and writing as a process of inquiry and communication.
WCC offers a variety of first year English classes to incoming students. Students who intend to complete a transfer degree (AAS) are required to take a second, 200-level composition course following English 101.
For assistance in choosing a class, see Entry & Advising in the Laidlaw Center or call 360.383.3080 for an appointment.
