Hostos CC English Department Community Site


Electives are sophomore-level literature classes intended for  students who have completed their freshman year in English. Electives are the most specifically-focused English classes offered at Hostos. They are designed to foster a more sophisticated approach to literature and to afford  opportunities to refine skills from freshman courses.
