ACCC Introduces Four New Degree Programs

Starting this fall, ACCC students will have four new degree programs to choose from when selecting a major.

ACCC will now offer two-year degrees in communication, cultural studies, digital design and technical studies.

Students pursuing the communication option will take courses to prepare for work in the communication industry, including newspapers, radio, television, magazines, public relations and advertising. Students will choose from a journalism or creative writing track.

A degree in cultural studies provides students a well-rounded liberal arts background with training in how to think, especially in diverse cultural environments. It is the gateway to many other disciplines and careers, including teaching, research, business and more.

The digital design degree option 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 institution or art school.

ACCC’s Board of Trustees has approved an option in technical studies for students who have completed the 375-hour Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer continuing education course and have passed the MCSE certification exam.
