Communication Program Main

At CPCC, students can be classified as a Pre-Communication major or as a Pre-Mass Comm/Journalism (because a major in Communication requires a 4-year degree).The Pre-Communication (A1010O) or Pre-Mass Communication/Journalism major (A1010W) leads to many potential job opportunities. Consult a faculty advisor or a Career Services Counselor about what you can do with a degree in the Communication field.

Communication Courses & Prerequisites

Public Speaking is what many people may think of first when they think about studying communication. Learning to address a group is one of many valuable skills that students of communication will develop, but communicating effectively involves both verbal and nonverbal communication skills. CPCC's Communication department offers a variety of courses where students can learn about many facets of communication including public speaking, persuasion, mass communication as well as interpersonal, nonverbal and intercultural communication. We recommend check the current course catalog for course availability, descriptions and prerequisite information.
