FC’s Next Degree Gives Students Something to Talk About

December 16, 2010

In a recent poll, FC freshmen and sophomores were asked whether or not they would be interested in pursuing a degree in communication at Florida College. The reaction was clear and overwhelming, with one in four students expressing interest in the degree program. As a result, Florida College is pleased to announce that this sixth bachelor’s degree program is progressing through the approval process to begin next fall 2011.The approval process involves course development, a series of internal approvals by the board, faculty and administration, as well as a final approval by our accrediting agency—the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Commission on Colleges. The accreditation process has been successful for the five bachelor’s programs currently offered at Florida College, and the faculty anticipates that this process will be equally smooth.

A degree in communication offers students a directed career path with the flexibility to combine the discipline with specific interests—and it is consistently one of the top ten degrees at colleges and universities.
