Associate in Arts (610)
The Communication Studies program seeks to provide students with comprehensive knowledge of the nature of human communication, the symbol systems by which it functions, the environments in which it occurs, its media, and its effects. This program focuses on communication interaction between individuals and the impact each has on the other. Community college students are strongly encouraged to complete an Associate in Arts degree before transfer.
Note: Students should be computer literate. Computer skills may be acquired before or early in the college experience.
