About English and Communications at Wolfson Campus
Welcome to the English & Communication Department at Miami Dade College, Wolfson Campus. We are happy to provide students with the curricular and academic support needed to create an essential foundation for any academic pathway. Our goal is to guide students to the highest level of achievement in reading, writing, speaking and listening, emphasizing critical thinking, rigorous content, and emerging technologies.
The department offers remote learning and blended classes with a variety of days and times to accommodate student learning and enrollment needs. If you'd like to pursue an English & Communication degree through focused study in English education, English literature, mass communication or journalism, we prepare students for upper division studies and connect students with peers, community, and industry.

The Reading and Writing Center
The Reading and Writing Center at MDC Wolfson provides tutorial assistance to students at all levels currently enrolled in MDC courses that emphasize reading, writing speaking and listening.
The Learning Spot
This is an academic support area which provides a friendly and warm environment that promotes college success strategies through supportive staff and an excellent repository of resources.
MDC launched its first student creative arts publication, Metromorphosis, at Wolfson Campus over 30 years ago.
Our mission is to guide students in becoming informed, effective and clear communicators, both as speakers and writers, who are productive in their professions and in the communities in which they live. Many careers require an individual who can write and speak well, solve problems, learn new information quickly and work efficiently with others on a team. English & Communication graduates use their education within varied careers as lawyers, grant writers, screenwriters, journalists, editors, teachers, speechwriters, web content developers, curriculum developers, research analysts, marketing consultants, social media consultants and activists.
Associate in Arts Pathway
The English/Literature & English Education program emphasizes close reading and critical writing skills while exploring and examining literary connections to culture, history, and other fields of study. Through the analysis of local and global novels, poems, films, and more, students will develop their own voices and become prepared for any career that emphasizes document analysis and creativity of expression. Students may also choose to participate in the annual MDC Student Writers Symposium, any of our Literary/Creative Writing Learning Communities, or join the staff of Metromorphosis, the Wolfson Campus creative arts publication.
Associate in Arts Pathway
The Mass Communication/Journalism program emphasizes study of rhetorical principles and media practices used to develop, share, and evaluate effective messages to large and specific audiences via verbal and written media such as print, digital media and the internet, social media, radio, and television. Courses offered train students to research, report and communicate objectively for print or web, teaching how to develop a compelling story while enhancing editing skills. Students may also complete a 1-3 credit internship, which provides practical, real-world experience.
