The Communications program offers classes that empower all students, both Communications majors and non-majors, with a greater understanding of the Information Age. While enrolled, students will develop the skills to thrive in this increasingly global and digital environment.
Communications courses offer students hands-on learning experiences through the creation of their own media content — professional- quality websites, digital productions, and well-crafted articles and layouts for “The Pulse,” Palo Alto College’s student- produced newsletter. All Communications majors will build a portfolio of work to present to their transfer institutions and to obtain internships and work in the mass media industry.
This program is a THECB-approved Field of Study, which means all coursework completed on the degree plan will fully transfer to satisfy the first two years of a Communications degree at any four-year public college or university in Texas.
