The A.A. degree in Digital Mass Media offers students the first two years of courses and fieldwork which allows students to transfer into a baccalaureate program or to seek immediate employment.

The program also prepares students for careers as publicity writers for public relations firms, advertising agencies, businesses, and organizations. The curriculum gives students hands-on writing, production and programming experience at the College radio station, television station, video editing/post production lab, literary magazine, and the print and online versions of the college newspaper.
