The Language Arts division provides an array of courses that can satisfy the general education and transfer requirements for students. You will find classes to fit your schedule at a variety of days and  times on campus. We also offer several online courses, if you prefer to learn from home. Our instructors strive to provide challenging and relevant courses that will prepare you for your future careers and promote your personal development.

We recommend that you start your English or English as a Second Language (ESL) classes at the beginning of your freshman year since grades of "C" or better in ENG 22 (or ESL 21/22) or ENG 100 (or ENG 100E) courses are often prerequisites for many Leeward CC courses. The COMPASS placement test will direct you to the English or ESL level that’s right for you. Getting a head start in English will help you succeed in all of your classes.
