Three New Degree Options Available This Fall

June 22, 2006

Beginning this fall, Atlantic Cape Community College will offer students three new degree options in Communication, Cultural Studies and Digital Design. ACCC already offers 40 programs leading to associate degrees in arts, science and applied science.

Communication—The Communication curriculum offers two tracks: creative writing and journalism. The option will lay a foundation for students who wish to go on for a bachelor’s degree or begin a career in print or electronic journalism, public relations, advertising or a related profession. Depending on the track students select, the program also provides training for careers within the industry including newspapers, radio, television, magazines, film, public relations, advertising and digital media.

Cultural Studies—Courses in the Cultural Studies program are multi-culturally oriented and draw on many disciplines for their content. The program opens new avenues for ACCC students to prepare for a variety of professions and academic pursuits and lays a foundation for going on for a bachelor’s degree in cultural studies at a four-year college or university.

Digital Design—This option prepares students to transfer to baccalaureate programs in digital design or fill entry-level positions in graphic design for print and digital media. The program emphasizes the exploration of the concepts and techniques related to graphic design, Web design and fine arts skills. Students will develop a portfolio in preparation for transfer to a four-year college or art school.
