The Communication Media program was designated as “promising” by the “Sharing What Works: Exemplary and Promising Career and Technical Education (CTE) Programs” project. It was provided in recognition of the program’s outstanding work and contributions to the field of career and technical education by the National Dissemination Center for Career and Technical Education.

Students wishing to rapidly obtain proficiency in one of the Communication Media disciplines may opt to pursue a one-year certificate. Each certificate focuses on specific skill sets of a certain discipline within the area of modern mass communication. Certificates are primarily designed to prepare students with relevant, marketable skills for entry-level employment in the media field. All courses in a certificate may also be applied to a two-year Associate of Applied Science degree.
