Communication Transfer

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, develop communication skills, and prepare to transfer to a four-year college or university communication program.

Program Information

• 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 in an area related to mass communication, organizational communication, or public communication. 

After Bristol

• Qualified Communication students transfer to four-year schools and may choose from among a variety of careers to pursue that are related to the communication field.

• Bristol participates in the statewide MassTransfer program and has developed many program-to-program transfer articulation agreements which guarantee admission and credit transfer.
