Sauk Academic programs

Communication (Media)

The Communication (Media) degree integrates courses in news writing and editing and applies current trends and technologies to create a cohesive academic program that meets clearly articulated goals that appropriately describe its scope and mission. Community college students are encouraged to complete an Associate in Arts degree prior to transfer.

Note: Students should be computer literate. Computer skills may be acquired before or early in the college experience.

Students who have already chosen the university to which they plan to transfer should consult that institution's catalog or department advisor and an SVCC academic advisor in planning their program. Transfer guides for some universities are available at svcc.edu/transfer.
