Associate of Arts:  Journalism

The journalism curriculum is an open-ended program that is arranged so the graduate is prepared to work in either the field or with additional course work, to transfer to a four-year college or university. Journalism majors are offered courses designed to train them in desktop publishing skills and for editorial, and photojournalism jobs on daily and weekly newspapers, magazines, trade journals and consumer publications. They also are prepared for work as freelance writers and as writers for television and radio news programs. The employment records of hundreds of graduates show the California Publishers Association approval of courses offered here.
