The mission of the program is to:

  • Instill an appreciation of the mass media, including the free speech/free press provisions of the First Amendment, both as consumers and as potential practitioners
  • Train students as future practitioners using hands-on laboratories, terminating in certificates, associate degrees and/or transfer to university programs
  • Provide the campus with student media outlets

The program offers two types of courses:

  1. Traditional lecture courses for general education and requirements for their respective majors
  2. Production courses that result in a media product for campus and public consumption and provide students with hands-on training
