Three New Degree Programs Planned for Fall Semester

July 6, 2011

Beginning this fall, Atlantic Cape Community College will offer students new degree programs in communication, new media studies and health services. Atlantic Cape already offers more than 40 career and transfer degree programs.

Communication—The communication associate in arts degree offers six tracks: communication arts, creative writing, journalism, public relations, radio production or television production. The program will prepare students to transfer to a four-year school, or for careers in the newspaper, radio, television, magazine, film, public relations, advertising and digital media industries, based on track selection. For additional information, contact Richard Benner at (609) 343-4976.

New Media Studies—Courses in the new media studies associate in applied science degree program will serve students who seek careers in new media production, but may not be interested in transferring to a four-year school. Students will learn the planning and production of various types of digital media, including: audio, video, graphics, Web pages, websites and photographs. The program will help students explore a variety of career choices in radio, television and Web graphic design, while focusing on writing. For additional information, contact James Taggart at (609) 343-4950.

Health Services—The health services associate in science degree builds the foundation coursework for students who want to pursue a bachelor’s degree in the health care field. The program offers courses that meet the prerequisites for the nursing associate in applied science degree. For additional information, contact Carol Mohrfield at (609) 343-5035.
