DCCC Communication Arts students


The Communication Arts major at Delaware County Community College blends the theoretical with the practical by providing students with a foundation in the study of human communication that prepares them to continue academic study in the field. In particular, students select specialized programs and related electives by choosing one of three degree program options: Communication Studies, Journalism, or Theatre. When selecting a Communication Arts program option, including courses and electives, the student should consult four-year transfer institution requirements.

The Communication Studies option is designed for students who wish to continue academic study in human communication including, but not limited to, interpersonal, intercultural, public speaking, and media studies.
