Mass Media leads to the Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree. This program offers students the opportunity to study the form, content, history and issues related to mass media while learning the skills necessary to produce basic content for mass media outlets, including print, online, and broadcast. The study of mass media will also develop students' critical thinking skills as they learn how to effectively discuss and analyze how society interacts with mass media.
This program is primarily designed for students seeking transfer to four-year institutions to study Mass Media, Journalism, Advertising, Public Relations and Communication. Additionally, the skills learned here could be used to gain entry-level positions as creators and distributors of mass media content in smaller media organizations.
