For curriculum information, contact the Arts and Humanities Division—Room HVPA-200—443-518-1480.
This curriculum is designed for those students transferring to a four-year institution, majoring in a wide range of communications and media programs. The main emphasis of communications studies is the history, processes, and effects of human communication through speech and related media courses. The curriculum is designed to provide a liberal education in the arts and sciences of human communication as well as preparation for career opportunities in business, government, education, and related fields. Students may choose among four tracks: Professional and Business Communications, Journalism and Media Communications, Interpersonal and Organizational Communications, and Speech and Written Communications. Each track is designed to transfer to a four-year school where students would further their studies in a similar concentration. The curriculum gives the student flexibility to pursue a major interest and, at the same time, to fulfill the lower-division general education requirements for transfer to a baccalaureate degree program. Students should seek guidance from advisors and the institution to which they intend to transfer to determine appropriate coursework for specific transfer programs.
