A person who understands the effects of communication has an opportunity to enter a variety of fields dealing with ways to effectively communicate to a variety of people. A degree in communication studies prepares a student for a career in almost any field. It is especially suited for careers in advertising, public relations, electronic media, broadcasting, journalism and politics. The communications curriculum at DCC provides an interested student with a sound base in a variety of perspectives including speaking, writing, business, and the humanities and prepares a student for transfer to a four year college or university. The Associate of Arts and Associate of Science are transfer degrees and are awarded without designation of major, but do follow curriculum transfer plans.  These degrees indicate that a student has completed a course of study that is essentially equivalent to the first two years of a baccalaureate degree.

PLEASE NOTE: When selecting courses, students should consult the catalog of the school to which they intend to transfer.  They should then work with their DCC advisor to assure that the proper classes are being taken at DCC.  Together, the student and the advisor will select courses that will fit into the program at the transfer institution.
