Are you a writer or poet? The process of writing is a way of sharing and discovering the nature of humanity. Our curriculum fosters excellence in English writing and composition while providing you, the student, with high-quality literature to learn from. You will gain insight into history and culture through understanding and mastery of the English language.

You can choose the emphasis of track you need to transfer to the university of your choice in order to make most of your time here. Master the literary arts and write your own career.
The Sierra Journal is a project developed by the students of Sierra College. The Sierra Journal meets several of the college’s core values, specifically “creating and nurturing meaningful connections to our community” and “fostering active citizenship in our community.” As such, the Journal will feature students currently enrolled at Sierra College as well as members of the community with an emphasis on submissions from local high school students.
