The Associate of Arts (AA) degrees are specifically designed for transfer as the equivalent of the first half of the Baccalaureate Degree requirements of most public colleges and Universities.

Today’s careers require the ability to communicate clearly, both verbally and in writing, and to understand how communication works within organizations and small groups and between individuals. Our diverse, rapidly-changing society rewards those who communicate persuasively and effectively with consumers, clients, and others across cultural boundaries. The Speech Communication concentration prepares students for transfer to a Bachelor of Arts while improving one’s marketability in all careers.  This curriculum follows the state approved field of study in communication studies.  See an advisor to ensure transferability.
