The EMLS/Linguistics Department at FCC offers EMLS reading and writing courses for students seeking to improve their English and study skills. The EMLS program is designed to equip students with the necessary skills required for academic work at the college level for degrees, certificates, or transfer. Our highest level EMLS classes feed directly into English 1A. We have three levels of instruction from low-intermediate through advanced (one level below English 1A). We offer hybrid classes (50% online) at our advanced level, instruction in our computer lab, and specially trained tutors who are embedded in our classes.
Additionally, the department offers two linguistic courses that satisfy transfer level area requirements. These classes are offered both face-to-face and online.
Our department does not offer a degree in either Linguistics or EMLS. However, it is possible to pursuing a degree in Linguistics after transferring to a 4-year college or university.
