What is English and English Composition in terms of academics?

English Language- is the foundation of the English language read, spoken, and written. In the world of academics, this is different from everyday speech and will have words only known to the field of scholars.

English Composition- is the ability to research and compose an idea into a readable format, whether fiction, non-fiction, journalism, or scholarly work. 

No matter which proponent of English, composition is vital to a scholarly career.
