English faculty with students

The English department strives to prepare students for success in academic transfer courses in three major areas of study.  Our faculty members, many with doctoral degrees, bring a variety of perspectives to the classroom, as well as a depth of teaching experience to benefit our students. The English division offers courses on each of our five campuses, on dual credit sites, and online.

Of the six academic areas in the Department of English is the largest with 21 full-time faculty members and more than 60 part-time instructors. Nearly every program at NCTC requires students to take some English courses, including developmental education, first-year composition, technical and creative writing, and literature courses.

Creative Writing Contest

North Central Texas College recognizes nearly fifty winners in several divisions and categories at the annual Creative Writing Contests every year. These contests feature poetry, short stories, and essays for middle school, high school, and college students. Also, adult categories are available to non-professional writers. Submissions may be sent to the English Department by late February.  Winning entries receive cash prizes and are published in The April Perennial, the NCTC literary magazine. Pick up a free copy of the magazine at any NCTC library. The annual awards ceremony held in April at the First State Bank Center for Performing Arts features a professional writer every year!
