Associate of Arts, concentration in Journalism


Return to Return to:

The Journalism Program combines theoretical understanding of the role of journalism in a free society and extensive hands-on training to prepare students for success in rapidly changing fields in mass media.  Coursework and student media allow students to gain experience and build portfolios.  A degree in journalism provides the foundation for jobs in newspaper, radio, television, magazines, Internet publications, photojournalism, documentary, filmmaking, public relations and advertising.  Journalism skills prepare students for success in many additional fields, such as law, business, entertainment and public policy.

The Field of Study curriculum, as listed in the additional requirements, has been approved by the Texas Higher Coordinating Board.

Some four-year institutions may not accept all courses in the major field of study as part of their Baccalaureate Degree Program.  Students should check with the Department of Media Communications or the four-year institution to which they plan to transfer for information.

Students may earn the Associate of Arts degree with a concentration in Journalism by completing the degree requirements listed below or may earn the Associate of Arts-Transfer Curriculum degree by completing the entire two years of any Journalism curriculum identified in a current 2+2 transfer agreement with a senior institution.
