LUFKIN, TEXAS, March 5, 2018 – Angelina College English instructor, Howard Cox was recently appointed to the English Language and Literature Field of Study Advisory Committee by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. The committee is composed of 24 voting members from a representative sample of institutions of varying sizes, peer groups and regions of the state.
Cox began his teaching career at Angelina College in 2001. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Stephen F. Austin State University and a Master of Arts degree from Abilene Christian University. He teaches American literature, British literature and composition.
“I am very pleased to represent East Texas and Angelina College as a voting member of the English Language and Literature Field of Study Committee. I look forward to working with the representatives from other public community colleges and universities to accomplish this important task,” Cox said.
The committee is charged with identifying the block of courses that students may transfer to a gneeral academic teaching institution. The English Language and Literaure FOS must be substituted for that institution’s lower-division requirements for that degree program, and the student must receive full academic credit toward the degree.
The FOS project contributes toward “60X30TX” goals of increasing completion by easing student transfer across institutions, and reducing student debt by making it less likely that students will take unnecessary courses.
