This A.A. in Journalism from SUNY Suffolk 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.
