This A.A. degree program is designed for students who wish to transfer to a four-year college to pursue careers in journalism, magazine writing, social media or writing for trade and web publications. This program meets the SUNY Transfer Path for Communication: Media. With completion of the associate degree (courses with “C” or higher), students will achieve junior status when transferring into a related program at the SUNY four-year institution.

The curriculum emphasizes a core of journalism courses with a background of liberal arts courses designed for transfer. The student will be trained in the basic principles and practices of journalism and will be given an opportunity to write for and participate in the production of a student news publication.

What's an associate degree?
An associate degree usually takes two years of study and prepares students for employment or transfer to a bachelor’s program at a four-year university.
