Mass Communications Transfer Pathway (AA)

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

No other industry has a more profound effect on everyday life than mass communications. We are constantly exposed to messages from electronic or print media that in some way influences our decision-making. Courses cover the impact of mass communication on society; understanding of media cultures; oral and written communications. Students have the opportunity to be involved in electronic and print media from the moment they step on to campus. From the CCTV newscast to The Cowley Press student newspaper, students can experience the facets of news media. Students learn through practical hands-on experience in addition to classroom instruction preparing them to enter the work force or continue their education at a four-year institution.
