Program Goals Statement
Students explore the fundamentals of human communication in theory and practice, analyze the historic and contemporary role of mass media and emerging new media in an increasingly diverse society, and develop communication skills while completing the first two years of a baccalaureate degree in communication.
- This transfer program is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year institution to complete their baccalaureate program.
- Based on advising and assessment of individual needs and direction, students may select a cluster of communication-related courses and gain practical experience through field-based learning.
- Students gain marketable skills from professors who engage students with tangible examples from industry experience.
- Qualified Communication students transfer to four-year colleges and universities and may choose from among a variety of careers to pursue that are related to the communication field including journalism, media production and public relations.
- Bristol participates in the statewide MassTransfer program and has developed many program-to-program transfer articulation agreements which guarantee admission and credit transfer.
