Why English?

Communications develops practical skills and applied knowledge by engaging students with real-life communications issues. Coursework develops understanding of fundamental principles and skills through hands-on experiences. A certificate can be completed in one year and can serve as the first step to the A.A.S. or A.G.S. degrees which are considered "ready to work" degrees. Students interested in transferring to a bachelor's program should enroll in the A.A. program
