This planning sheet lists only the courses related to the journalism/communications major. Students planning to transfer as a journalism/communication major should follow the requirements for the Associate of Arts (AA-DTA) or other appropriate university transfer degree. Check with your advisor and transfer institution for more details regarding which degree option is best.
Communication and especially journalism majors should choose classes that provide a well-rounded exposure to the basic systems, issues and concerns of American society; to the basic nature of people; and to the expanding global marketplace. The courses recommended below help provide that exposure. Students also are encouraged to pursue courses in anthropology, geography and environmental issues.
