Shawna Shoaf, Department Chair
The Associate of General Studies degree with an emphasis in Mass Communications prepares you for a career in journalism, radio/TV broadcasting, advertising, public relations or New Media Technology by providing a two-year foundation of courses designed to transfer to four-year colleges and universities.
This program teaches you to think critically and develops your skills in news writing, television and radio production, advertising, videography and web design. Courses provide a solid foundation in these areas through a mixture of lecture and hands-on application. A fully equipped video control room and a mobile production truck provide you with multi-camera working classrooms. Several nonlinear editing suites offer you a diversity of experience in the changing field of communication. You will also gain experience in production and digital media through our media lab and the many volunteer opportunities we offer.
Transferability of courses depends upon the courses taken and the receiving institution. The PCC/CSU-Pueblo Transfer Agreement allows the AGS Media Communications graduate to transfer to the Colorado State University-Pueblo Mass Communications Department with a junior standing.
